The poems in Like This, Like That revitalize a faith in the imagination. They are intelligent, sad, funny, and always surprising. With poise and an unflinching eye on our underlife, Libby Wagner sings back to us in a voice that is muscular, sensual, and clear.

—Nance Van Winckle

Libby Wagner’s first full-length collection of poetry, Like This, Like That, is a work of disciplined emotion: an autobiography of the body and soul, and the record of a journey of a young girl into womanhood in America. All of this is enriched by a gracefully imaginative regard for the world, and however personally referential the details of this life may seem, Ms. Wagner manages through her keen eye for details rich in historical and emotional context, to open up this life so that we may enter there and find our common ground.

—Bruce Weigl
