Praise for A Study in Spring:
“Part friendly (and at times flirtatious) correspondence, part lyrically charged banter that ignites the playful brain spasms, and part academic conversation that's gone delightfully awry and landed in someplace altogether more fascinating than any assigned essay, A Study in Spring is a strange and welcomed poetic delight. Acrobatic in its construction, but satisfyingly candid and scintillating in its execution, this is a terrific chapbook made for those who love the intriguing act of eavesdropping.”

- Ada Limón, National Book Award finalist for Bright Dead Things
