Praise for Carla Funk

"Her writing is achingly lovely. Her images are unexpected windows to tenderness and terror, and her ear is blessed with perfect pitch."
-George Sipos, Connections Magazine

"…the internal rhyme, the phonic weave of Funk's words wrap these lines around themselves, sounds echo, resonate as if in that hollow palace... Funk's writing is sensual and rich, tactile."
-Marnie Parsons, University of Toronto Quarterly

"Most memorable [from the bestselling anthology Hammer & Tongs] is Carla Funk's series of Solomon's Wives poems which creates a Middle-Eastern world replete with sensory and sensual details."
-Ibi Kaslik, Danforth Review
