“There is only one Anna Joy Springer. Only one. Her words take me from kitten to monster and back again in a way only she can do. I love this book.”

“How to describe the charm, wit, innocence and energy in AJS’s Red Relic? With intelligence and heart she enlarges a little the things a novel is capable How very lucky I am to have read it!”
– Carole Maso, author of AVA and Break Every Rule
“My god this book is beautiful. Each moment. A breath in a forest, a breathing beneath the bark of trees. A way to see that has remained shadowed, in shadows, under shadows, such sentence. each sentence a journey”
–Doug Rice, author of Blood of Mugwump: A Tiresian Tale of Incest and A Good Cuntboy Is Hard To Find
“A page-turner, fast and muscular, electric and sometimes “repulsive” (cf Rimbaud’s characterization of women’s writing-to-be as “delicate, repulsive, beautiful.”) Through the typography and collaging, you read a whole page incredibly swiftly, almost as if all at once. The handling of the Sumerian/Babylonian mythological material is superb. And you finally never know, as reader, if you are reading “myth” or autobiography.
– Alice Notley, author of Disobedience and Reason and Other Women
