"Groom proceeds--headlong, staggering and every now and then stumbling onto something extraordinary."
--New York Times Book Review
"Underwater City introduces us to a voice that is both ghost-like and full of wonder. Her imagery is as fantastical and as clear as Magritte's."
"At times, Groom's poems are so powerful that they seem to touch at undiscovered emotional centers that both shake and comfort us."
--The Missouri Review (online)
"The poem's themes remain with the reader long after the book has been set down."
--The Florida Review
"Groom skillfully connects loves to losses, generations to one another, and oceans near and distant. . . Each poem offers exceptional craftsmanship, precisely rendered emotions, and haunting images."
--Southern Humanities Review
