Field’s frequently shifting scenes evoke Alice Notley, Anne Carson, and James Joyce.
Thalia Field’s curiosity and probe are infectious, tantalizing, irrepressible. She is one of our most startling, original younger writers. - Anne Waldman
Between the inward tension of the point and the outward push of the line, Thalia Field maps a force field of relations, power games, shifting configurations, in a language both cool and intense, and with a surveyor’s precision. - Rosmarie Waldrop
A hybrid of essayistic fragments and poetic lines exploring the toxic relationship between humans and the animal world by way of myth, metaphor and science: 'the forests have changed, the temperatures, / whole species gone north or south.'
Field draws from a variety of sources — scientific, historical, philosophical — to create a kind of text collage that nonetheless moves from point to point. Her sense of humor is witty and snarky....Field lands many a critical body blow to speciesism. - Carl Little
Thalia Field does not settle on final answers but draws us into inquiries that unsettle our definitions. She is ignited by nature and the wild; she does not recoil from repelling us with factual talk; her book intends to move us to thoughtful action by destabilizing us with art. - Anakana Schofield
