About Phrasebook for the Pleiades:

Book Award Judge Gray Jacobik writes:

I am dazzled by Phrasebook for the Pleiades and humbled, and gladdened, for these are works of strong polyvalence and resonance…. Each has the intractability of the ideal: the ideal rider on the ideal horse, the poet knowing when to pull in the reins and stop. I felt my pulse quicken reading these poems and my desire to have written them myself was quickly extinguished by gratitude that Lorraine Doran has.

Purchase Phrasebook for the Pleiades from the CPR book store.
