In this finely crafted and timeless collection of poems, Ann Settel has quilted together all of the ecstasies and tumults that compose a life. Rich in memory and musicality, and powerful in their poetic retelling, these exquisite narratives leave as indelible an impression on the reader as the events themselves made on the poet. Quilt is a patchwork of poems to blanket oneself in and savor—a testament to the poet's keen artistry and her gracious, grateful heart.
Ann Settel's poems have always moved me very much. They are memorable, vivid in my mind after years, fresh as when I first was astonished by them.
