Praise for Head Full of Sun

“[Carla] Funk’s Head Full of Sun contains an effective series of particular women (Goliath’s wife, Eve, Ruth, Jezebel), and a work that is at once a brilliant comedy and a serious meditation called ‘Alphabet of Psalms,’ which at one point poignantly reads: ‘when the words become lies and the lies/ wear the names of people I know/ I want to believe they . . . / leave the room and page thinking/ that poem is about me/ she means me/ I want her to mean me.”
-W.H. New, Canadian Literature
