"After I Was Dead possesses a quiet intertextuality that helps support the central concept of drifting between boundaries."
"It may be possible to recover language in the space of poetry. Laura Mullen's second book of poems, After I Was Dead—bound to the mad and irreconcilable desire for honesty—strives for this recovery while relentlessly questioning its own motives at every turn."
"Despite the reassurances of our good looks with which lesser poets woo us, we are not so dead that we do not respond with a kind of happiness to this unexpected demonstration that truth really is beauty."
