“With Stevensian proliferations and Dickinsonian refractive speed, Enter Invisible puzzles without ruse, conveying a lightning-quick mind, always electric, fiercely inventive. The descriptive angularities, formal variance, and musical resources are sassy, tricky, and intriguing, full of razzle-dazzle and enormously beguiling, even as a tragic sense simmers within their mar ...more

Another book to add to my growing list of poetry volumes that play with fairy tales (as well as cartoons, children's science textbooks, forms, and Wallace Stevens's brain!)

I appreciated Wing's idiosyncratic use of form, and as a fun, slight read this (debut?) collection delivers.

I met Catherine Wing at a poetry reading at the Hutch School in Seattle. Impressive! I can't wait to pick up her book.
