Praise for Redirection of the Heart
Deborah Gordon Cooper tackles a common, inevitable life stage - the death of a parent - and transforms it into a series of extraordinary experiences. The pain of the poems is fresh, on the surface, but tempered by a reflective eye. This collection smoothly glides from the pain of loss and grief to the affirmations of (natural and spiritual) eternal life.
- Kimberly Willardson, Editor, Vincent Brothers Review

Praise for The Gods of Wild Things:
The poems of Deborah Gordon Cooper redeem the world, time and again, with the loving attention she bestows on often unseen -- and unsung -- natural and human detail. Utilizing "every scrap of light" she can find, she has crafted a collection of lyric poetry so beautiful it glows.
- Jill Breckinridge, author of Civil Blood
