Fugitive Angels: Poems

“Fugitive Angels cunningly recalls, like a mother reminding children it is time to eat, the creeds by which we pretend we live.  These creeds are set against more acceptable fictions, and more acceptable rationalism.  The fine line between the two is the space in which Walker locates her work.  These poems fit.  They bend and flex.  They are funny, punning, and clear-headed.” 
Peggy Phelan, The Women’s Review of Books

“Jeanne Murray Walker’s second book is long, substantial, energetic.  She is both story-teller and metaphysician.  The best of these poems have the plain radiance of Walker Evans photographs.”  
Jane Cooper, Washington Post Book World
