"Fierce Light" is an astonishing collection. Linda Scheller channels the almost-lost voices of women from the recent as well as distant past, in poems that alternately rejoice, seduce, lament, and rage. Scheller has composed a righteously eloquent chorus of activists and artists, warriors and poets, daughters and grandmothers. We need to listen to them all, right now, perhaps more than ever."
