Because paying attention is a form of prayer, Angela Narciso Torres’s poems
pay deep and close attention. The details of these poems are stitched together
with great care, and what we get is not just the landscape of memory but also
the landscape of family, which in the end is the god we really pray to
when we are restless. These are beautiful and beautifully made poems.
~C. Dale Young, author of THE HALO, TORN, and THE SECOND PERSON

There's something lush and holy in these poems that slip between generations,
between daughterhood and motherhood. BLOOD ORANGE elegantly charts
the mysteries of family and place, time and its uncertainties, with a keen vision
that is at once sensual, entrancing and deeply felt. Line by careful line,
Angela Narciso Torres brings forward an enchanting poetry, with "two fingers
on the pulse like the true point / of a divining rod," always ready to lead us
to water or love—the currents that shimmer beneath this book's rich surfaces.
~Matthew Olzmann, author of CONTRADICTIONS IN THE DESIGN and MEZZANINES
