“Nina Clements has created a family epic with characters who will haunt you for a lifetime. . . . Our Mother of Sorrows is a miracle.” - Kim Dower, New York Journal of Books
"Their love blossomed on the campus of the city’s center of culture, along on the grassy embankment surrounding the reflection pool in the front of the planetarium, a half-moon structure that seemed to float on the water like a fisherman’s bobber. They studied the names chiseled into in the granite monoliths aligned at the water’s edge as though they were archeologists exploring the city’s ancient ruins. Suddenly, the names of different city streets and buildings were connected to something real and tangible."
"Mark Luebbers uses his poetic gifts of keen observation to examine how the extraordinary hides in the seemingly mundane. In these poems, transformation is a mere look away, a kestrel becoming a goddess, a childhood desk becomes a star cruiser." - Traci Brimhall, author of Come the Slumberless to the Land of Nod (2020)
"All of the other mammoths died out during the last Ice Age but a tiny colony survived on a small island north of Siberia and due to something called insular dwarfism they became very small. The last ones were only about three feet tall and weighed a couple hundred pounds. They told stories, though. They watched the Aurora Borealis and told their children that once they were giants. Mighty and strong and the earth shook for them. They would gather on hilltops and look south and raise their trunks and call out to the world: We’re still here!"
