Dawn of this Hunger is a startling literary

achievement. Nothing in the work of any 

contemporary poet prepares us for the impact of these poems. PAUL MURRAY OP

I am indebted to Sally Read for the moments

of stunning beauty she has brought to me

in her verse. Breathtaking, pause-making, gratitude-giving, wonder-filling, contemplation-inducing, soul-dilating." JOSEPH PEARCE

This gorgeous, lyrical collection of poems...glows with luminous insight. SARAH LAW

Rarely does a poet take on such quiet persistent enormities as are present in these poems. They are devout avowals made before presences that have shaken her being to its spiritual core. BARON WORMSER
