    Praise for Lucie Brock-Broido    'This is a poet who cultivates elegant nerviness and a riveting poetic clairvoyance... In Trouble in Mind we witness the imagination's virtuosity... distilled in the alembic of the poet's radical, brilliantly inventive diction.'
    Los Angeles Times Book Review

      'Brock-Broido's talismanic words open into a magical territory of 'Domestic Mysticism'...Something in Brock-Broido likes stealth, toxicity, wildness, neon... The poems leap off the page.'
    Helen Vendler, The New Yorker
    'A true original, Brock-Broido renews the language on every page, surely the essential work of the poet.'
    John Burnside
