For Wild One
“Confessional poetry too easily collapses into self-exploitation and too rarely approaches universality. But Day’s generous collection is that rara avis, the successful, indeed gripping, autobiography in verse.” — Patricia Monahan, Booklist
For The Curvature of Blue
“There is that rare feeling, that you can hardly wait to reread a poem you are reading for the first time because you know you will find some slyly hidden bulb the next time.” —Daniel Langton, Psychological Perspectives
“How does one categorize such an uncategorizable talent?. . .Her poetry, like scientific field work, is informed by remarkable powers of observation, curiosity and the urge to answer, or at least attempt to answer, The Big Questions.” —Elizabeth Bantos, Ibbetston Street Update
For Fire in the Garden
“By sheer will, she is determined to override the unconscious fear, the dread of the unknown. I, for one, believe she has done it, and wherever these roads, trains, leaps, and ladders might lead, the poems leave the reader looking forward to the next book.” —Timothy Houghton, Poet Lore
For God of the Jellyfish
“Always accessible, the accomplishment of God of the Jellyfish is Day’s ability to be both lighthearted and profound at once…Day tells us it is good to be alive, fully inhabiting the moment, reveling in the natural world.” —Joan Gelfand, Bay Area Poets Seasonal Review
For Self-Portrait with Hand Microscope
“a narrative gift which…might win her an important place in American letters.” —Emily Grosholz, The Hudson Review
