"… Chango's Fire succeeds in its rich characterizations of the people of the barrio, led by Julio, whose complexity and sensitivity carry the story. The ensemble also includes Julio's adored mother and sister and a legion of quirky friends, bosses and would-be lovers … I found myself rooting for Julio, who slowly realizes there is no shortcut on the road to honor and righteousness." — The Washington Post

"Andrea Witzke Slot's To Find a New Beauty is rich with cool, intelligent and carefully crafted poems that often have a subtext of terror and darkness. She uses a variety of personae—Penelope, Eurydice, Io, the nymph on Keats's Grecian urn, a woman who marries her sister's widower and others—in land- [and sea-] scapes that are powerful personae too in these poems."— Marge Piercy
