True North is a profound meditation on history and geography, time and eternity, number and a state beyond number. It is a superb book...”

— The Women’s Review of Books

“Strickland is the fanatical heir of tiny and enormous languages: earthtalk, cybertalk, Mother Goose, witchcraft, science, Cuneiform, direction, isolation, mathematics, privilege, history and that grand old elusive: truth.”

— Maureen Seaton

“Strickland is a thrilling poet... Rooted in her sense of the profound voluptuous, she is a powerful ‘fabulist of what we are.’”

— Marie Ponsot
