"A compelling critique of culture and politics, a dazzling experiment in free verse form, and a dizzying, surreal representation of the voice of the mind."
"Heady, ravishing, and unsettling; sound of a strange new time."
"Working through Tessa Rumsey's Assembling the Shepherd becomes much like analyzing any Coltrane solo. Taken as a whole, the creative output seems euphoric, nearly religious, but once inside the structural framework, one finds endlessly complicated patterns and ordered repetitions which give indication of a divining mind at work."
Throughout the book, familiar themes are seen again and again, undergoing subtle metamorphosis: the seasonal solstice, the sundial, the planets, the Sphinx—as Rumsey invites us beneath the surface of her words.
