Praise for Quarantine Highway
It's a manifesto of her survival and her identity in response to the pandemic, and its existence will demonstrate how to be led back to a place of safety.
Alex Carrigan -- Drizzle Review
Like breaking bread and memorizing trees, Accardi's poems step past comets that blast loneliness and cracks in the sidewalk from our childhood in order to help us rediscover all the connections we've missed. —Juan J. Morales
