Reviews

December physically ferries the reader back and forth between word and image, prompting a search for equivalents, as well as for those lost elements that have no equivalents. The space that December inhabits--a winter at once ominous and intimate, the last breath of the year in anticipation of its end and rebirth--is not unlike the space of translation. --Madeleine LaRue Quarterly Conversation
