"Unopened Letters follows the internal, intensely bright transit of a grand passion, and it does it, as the title suggests, in an elliptical and condensed language which honors the conflicting needs for utterance and reticence. When touching the heart's core beyond the personal, these poems give obsessive passion an essential, self-illuminating voice."—Eleanor Wilner
"The ease and directness of these poems make an unexpected testament of singularly complex feeling. Linda Zisquit's work is uniquely present yet timeless. Its clarity has no equal."—Robert Creeley
"This is a special book of a woman's poetry. Exact and delicate and strong like lace. Soft and sensuous and yet powerful like a machine."—Yehuda Amichai
