Candace Curran's poetry is "beautiful, ....

poised between ache and ecstasy: startling

images, like "she let him pull her / dignity

down / like a  shade to the floor"

- Robert Cormier, author of 

The Chocolate War and I Am the Cheese


She writes, "I pull on your fantasy so hard, 

it comes off in my sign language hands,

a snake skin shining like spider silk in the

day bed, "Curran's poems are like that

shining spider silk, unexpected and replete

with multi-layered depth and fine craft."

- Lori Desrosiers, Westfield State College,

editor of Naugatuck River Review and
