Here are what other poets and writers say about River by the Glass:

Pattiann Rogers, poet, says:

The poems in River By the Glass are rich with the details of the earth moving moment by moment from death to life, from life to death.  Monika Rose understands the union of these transformations and records them with the energy, contemplation, and originality of finely composed poetry.  Like glass, her poetry offers both a reflection of the physical world and a window into our human experiences of its shifting beauty and mystery.

–Pattiann Rogers                       http://home.comcast.net/~pattiann_rogers/

Kathy Isaac-Luke, poet, says:

In her new collection, River by the Glass, Monika Rose shows her
formidable range. By turns meditative, profound and imaginative, her
poems are always, at their core, genuine and unflinchingly honest.
Whether rooted in landscape or familial memory, these poems are rich
in metaphor and finely crafted. With the precision of a scalpel and
the clarity of fresh water, River by the Glass takes the reader on a
journey of discovery.

—Kathie Isaac-Luke, author of Chrysalides, 2010, Dragonfly Press

 

Kevin Arnold, poet and director of the San Jose Poetry Center says:

Monika Rose inhabits the Mother Lode country, a geography that produces poetry.  Down the highway from where the Squaw Valley Community of Writers winter with Gary Snyder, her poems grow out of local soil.  No wonder Monika is dedicated to bringing out the best of her community.  These fine poems could have been written nowhere else.

From Mary Mackey, novelist and poet:

“Rose’s poetry captures the texture and currents of the river, translating water into words.”
–Mary Mackey

      Congratulations, Monika on your website and on the publication of your lovely book, River by the Glass. I’m your friend but I would love your book even if I didn’t know you! Your poems touch me in many ways–with their humor, as in ‘Carp’ and ‘Cleaning Fish’, their celebration of everyday pleasures, as in ‘The Ritual of Coffee Making’, their appreciation of nature, as in ‘The Bull Pine in the Window’ and the very touching glimpse into the world of Alzheimer’s in ‘From the Other Side’, which brings tears every time I read it.
      You capture moments, feelings and truths with your words and give us new eyes. Bravo!

        I will write a poem just for you, my dear friend! I’m working on it, now!
