My book Fever Dream / Take Heart Cathexis North West Press, 2020, was reviewed by Laurie Saurborn at The Night Heron Barks. Here's what editor Rogan Kelly had to say:

I am struck by the kind of conversation that takes flight in Laurie Saurborn’s review of Valyntina Grenier’s FEVER DREAM / TAKE HEART. The grounding Saurborn accounts for in Grenier’s image-building. Grenier, also a visual artist, knows how to engage the mind’s eye of the reader–or pull back the curtain and reveal her own. There is such movement in these poems as in Saurborn’s prose and we are witness to the music between them. Caught up in it.
