Julie Carr is an assistant professor of English, whose research and teaching interests include creative writing (poetry), Victorian literature, and poetics. She is a frequent contributor to literary magazines and the author of collections, including her second, Equivocal.

The volume was reviewed by Ilya Kaminsky in Library Journal. Kaminsky commented: ‘Carr's is dearly a voice of tender lyricism and much intimacy, yet it is never obscure.’ He concluded by calling the book ‘beautiful."
