The Month in Which We Are Born (dancing girl press, 2015)
"Danielle Susi’s poems scrutinize paradoxes of language, perception, and memory—working from elemental difficulties to larger problems of identity, with a spare lyricism that belies the philosophical complexity of her work...She is the kind of writer who excavates the impossible, the paradoxical, from even the most mundane acts of naming and seeing."
--Toby Altman, Entropy
"...The Month In Which We Are Born unfurls into a deep, paced read – of empathetic engagement with the reader, and a keen understanding of the human lifecycle, that we’re always moving toward becoming something 'other' than the bodies we were born in..."
--Nicole Rollender, Sabotage Reviews
"Due to their short length, some chapbooks can leave a reader unsatisfied. But the unity and energy of the poems here allow The Month In Which We Are Born to read like a longer, fully realized work."
--Toby Eckert, Lines + Stars
