Ariana Reines, author of Mercury, says: "Sonya Vatomsky's Salt Is For Curing is many things: a feast, a grimoire, a fairy tale world, the real world. It's also too smart for bullsh*t and too graceful to be mean about the bullsh*t: a marvelous debut. I love it."

Roxane Gay, author of Bad Feminist, says: "Curious, intricate poems."

Salt Is For Curing is the lush and haunting full-length debut by Sonya Vatomsky. These poems, structured as an elaborate meal, conjure up a vapor of earthly pains and magical desires; like the most enduring rituals, Vatomsky's poems both intoxicate and ward. A new blood moon in American poetry, Salt Is For Curing is surprising, disturbing, and spookily illuminating.

Salt Is For Curing also praised by art/culture/occult site Luna Luna Magazine, author Dennis Cooper, goth lifestyle site The Belfry, Entropy Magazine, darkling jeweler Blood Milk, and others.
