"ACROSS THE DARK draws the reader into a light that reflects
family and the larger world.These imaginative poems resonate with
experiment: a gutsy presence that illuminates the modern psyche: "...he paints The Last Supper/ on the shell of an almond--/ each disciple’s body a betrayal." The betrayals in this voice are believable and curative, and backlit with human warmth."
—Yusef Komunyakaa

As a painter, Pam Bernard has an eye for the pathos of disproportion, asymmetry, and saturation of color. The same eye gives to her poetry a painterly fullness and a special emotional intensity…her exploration of her own formation as a woman, a painter, a thinking and feeling being, in the crucible of family, is the tale of the compellingly portrayed moments of her alert passage through the world.
— Reginald Gibbons
