Press & Reviews

“The poems of The Greenhouse are profound, fundamental works, born of a deep interiority and making their intricate ways, phrase by phrase, toward a design both organic and artful.”
—David Baker

“Investigates the joys and complexities of this evolution, this meld and pull, with verve and a calming intelligence.”
—Bob Hicok

The Greenhouse is as alive as the title promises. These poems are wildly thoughtful, pensively wild.”
—Laura Kasischke

“Until reading The Greenhouse, I didn’t know what a chapbook could do. I’d read plenty of moving chapbooks, sure. But to create, in only twelve poems, an experience as urgent, as real, and as necessary as The Greenhouse is astonishing.”
Rain Taxi Review of Books

“These multivocal poems reverberate with questions, asides, daydreams, mathematical calculations…. It is thrilling to follow Stonestreet on this journey, through patience and restlessness, moving from one thought to the next while she goes about the daily chores of looking after a young child. The speaker doesn’t seem dulled by the monotony and sleep deprivation but pressured by it – pressure [that] creates an intent intellectual scrutiny.”
