Description:

“Delicate, detailed, and firm all at once. Amy Randolph’s poems in Cold Angel of Mercy are anything but cold. They are loving celebrations of what it means to live on this side of heaven. She is an exquisite poet.”

—Liz Rosenberg

“In an age of poems all too easily written and all too frequently published, Amy Randolph’s poems are those rarest of things: works of art filled with tact, restraint, and deep human feeling seasoned by experience and years. Filled with “grief and unfolding,” yet open to all that arrives, “lonely in its unexpectedness, her poems are as vigilant as the regrets she herself observes, as heartfelt as that yearning for God she so movingly inhabits and describes. Here is a poet who knows all too well that “you don’t have to go far to be damaged,” but who also knows the distance one does have to go—and the attention that needs to be paid, the love given—to be redeemed.”

—Michael Blumenthal
