Reaching for Honey



“Through Carolyn Stoloff’s painter’s eyes, a bright swarm of images rushes by us and we are filled with a sense that the world is luminous, spiritually alive, and ready to speak to us. This, her eighth book, is Rilke’s ‘bee of the invisible, bringing us its honey.”—John Balaban

“Ecclesiastes was wrong; once in awhile there is something new under the sun.”—Paula Rankin

“There is an excitement, a liveliness, in the world of Stoloff’s poetry. There is verve in her poetry reminiscent of the verve in good O’Hara poems and those jazzy paintings of Piet Mondrain, such as ‘Broadway Boogie-Woogie.'”—Library Journal
