Cami Park on God Damsel:
I am enthralled by and in awe of this work– God Damsel is innovative and utterly fearless in its treatment of language, yet completely accessible, and funny as hell. A superb accomplishment.

Bernadette Geyer on The Myth of the Simple Machines:
Snyder’s collection is enjoyable not only for its inventiveness, which surprises and delights with its juxtapositions (The white storm seemed / outside me, but it wasn’t just.) but also for its myriad strong, memorable voices (The wave was my full skirt in the warm sun, in the wet world where everything moved but nothing was lost or gained.)
