Praise for When Time Was Suspended
Over the years, Julia Nunnally Duncan has established herself as an acolyte of Appalachia, a daughter of song, with a voice as true as a plumb line, and a capacious gaze that stirs her to unforgettable language. Her latest volume of poetry, When Time Was Suspended—a fascinating, richly imagined conflation of history, ethnography, genealogy, ancestry, family Bible, and a suite of ekphrastic masterpieces—only adds to her growing, formidable oeuvre. Duncan’s books are dazzling, indisputable knockouts, and this might be her best
—Joseph Bathanti, North Carolina Poet Laureate & Author of Light at the Seam
When Time Was Suspended features Julia Nunnally Duncan in full possession of her craft as she renders moments in time with haunting sensitivity, turning sights into insights, sounds into subjects. Nostalgic, prophetic, and profound, these poems of family and place tell aching stories about moments and scenes long gone that, nevertheless, persist.
—Allen Mendenhall, Author of A Glooming Peace This Morning
