"Sara is a lyrical spirit that is one part child, one part poet, and all visionary. Sara Woods' concise, delightful prose moves quickly yet resonates, like a fire that catches fast and smolders for a long time. Like some kind of reincarnated American Henri Michaux, Woods manages to make these prose poems both hilariously absurd and devastatingly sincere."—Nathan Hoks

"Sara's father is a wolf. Her dog is a miracle. These little poem-stories are feral in content but meticulous in construction. They are little miracles adding up to the sum of a beautiful storybook." - Dena Rash Guzman, author of Life Cycle--Poems

"As I have learned, and as Sara helped me to understand even more, loving something is not so very far away from wanting to eat it. To feel it growing inside of you, stopping your breathing, clogging your pores. To be a way of keeping, of forestalling our inevitable crumble into the ground. And we can feel so very much alone sometimes that loving is almost like hugging the sand, like wanting to marry the beach or kick the water. Almost like being dated by masses of people screaming their phone numbers at you in unison. But maybe with these beautiful, small, heroic bites in Sara, or the Existence of Fire, we can ingest, if only for a little while, what makes us good, what makes us human." -Gale Marie Thompson, author of Soldier On
