- Harryette Mullen: Recyclopedia (Graywolf, 2006)
- Linda Gregg: In the Middle Distance (Graywolf, 2006)
Gregg: Mostly harmless. A few bright and surprising poems in an otherwise pedestrian collection. Minimalism is one thing, but not quite going far enough is another. Some poets benefit from seeing many of their poems together, others are better one isolated poem at a time. Linda Gregg, for me, seems to be among the latter.
