What “critics” are saying:
“The Knot Untied is a delightful, uplifting book of poems for all readers. Patrice’s work filled my mind with wonderment, with understanding and with longing to see the world as she does.”
– Casey Coonerty Protti, owner of Bookshop Santa Cruz
“A collection of compelling poems which transcend the reader into every journey awaiting on each page. Reading these poems is like watching little black and white movies.”
– Theresa Masciovecchio, bookkeeper and Nigel Francis, butcher
“These poems are so clean stylistically, so accessible, and yet, so glimmeringly insightful and true. They’re welcoming, which in my opinion is rare in poetry these days.”
– George Lober, author of A Bridge to There
