“Phantom Canyon [by Kathryn Winograd] is a rich read, not an easy one. It can be almost painfully introspective, and is occasionally so abstract as to almost come untethered. Almost. It always lands safely, grounded by earth and life itself. The narrative has a rhythm like a heartbeat, a pulsing meditation on how to live with fear and doubt, violation and loss, how to circle back and love the world after all.”

“Dig with a pen, said poet Seamus Heaney. Kathryn Winograd uses a pickax to excavate old pains and buried memories as part of a personal reclamation project in this collection of essays. Like the douser she hires in “Finding the Well,” she has an unerring instinct for what lies deep below the surface and is willing to drill down until she hits it.”Book Review, Kathryn Winograd, press
