“Thicket is a masterful book. Stories, images, dreams, ideas, and elements of dailiness weave through and nestle within Janisse-Barlow’s gorgeous, and absorbing, stanzas. I read and re-read these poems, finding something new each time. As the poet herself observes: ‘Pass us over and we can slip back and forth unannounced.’” – Lynn Crawford
