Reaper knocked me flat with its utter breathlessness, its grim and terrifying lyricism, and its relentless re-angling of the magical haven we like to call the future. In deftly crafted stanzas that shove urgently at our perceptions, McDonough paints a stark picture of a soulless tomorrow ruled by the technologies of convenience—a tomorrow we just might stop if we could.”
—Patricia Smith

“Words that come to mind to describe Jill McDonough’s agile, alert poems are: humanity, sociability, clear-eyed, oxygen-filled, and humor. Also: morally serious and deeply thoughtful. Reaper’s such a readable book—in tone, so intimate and cheerful—that one almost doesn’t notice that it’s full of poems about technology, death, and war. Also love, also hope: ‘…we have all the time anybody else/in the world gets. All the time we need to say/the right thing, find new right things to say.’”
—Daisy Fried
