"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Praise for Tiktaalik, Adieu

Science looms large and lives well in Tiktaalik, Adieu. Pedersen’s lovely poems speak for, and to, our ever evolving, rapidly changing natural world, wherein the human animal seeks peace, or simply survival, from “resting place to resting place.” ~ Nance Van Winckel, author of Pacific Walkers

Lynn Pedersen gathers the world into her poems: its classical elements, its intricate patterns, its infinite mysteries. She makes gorgeous lyrics of stars and bone. ~Tania Rochelle, author ofKaraoke Funeral and The World’s Last Bone
