What People are Saying About This
"Kate Light's poetic language remains lively and surprising throughout The Laws of Falling Bodies because she allows so much to enter her poems. In formal but by no means grave measures and rhymes deftly angled, she fully conveys her world, a world that comes to us wrapped around a quick, distinctive voice."

Kate Light's collection is a wonderful collection of poems, especially when you consider that it is her first. The poems, mostly formal, use language in a sensual way. you can feel her training as a musician the way the words float over you, melodious is the word that comes to mind. her poems tend to deal with love, but she manages to pull back before she reaches sentimentality. many of the poems deal with music as well. furthermore, the cover art is most fitting for the collection within. and i happen to know that she picked it herself. great collection. count me as a big fan, and i'm waiting for her next book.
