“Exact and delicate and strong, like lace. Soft and sensuous and yet powerful as a machine.” – Yehuda Amichai, Ritual Bath

“The ease and directness of these poems make an unexpected testament of singularly complex feeling. Linda Zisquit’s work is uniquely present, yet timeless. Its clarity has no equal.” – Robert Creeley, Ritual Bath

“Keenly attuned to biblical lore and song, Linda Zisquit – alias Korah’s daughter – steals across sacral and profane worlds ‘with an eight-stringed heart’, courting danger, seeking wholeness.” – Gabriel Levin, From the Notebooks of Korah’s Daughter
