"Her poems come of a nature simultaneously erotic, austere, and of good will. It may be said of Goldberg, as it has been said of Shakespeare, that a dirty mind is a perennial resource."
--Howard Nemerov

“One envies her good eye and celebrates the voice that in its ‘hunger for clarity’ speaks.”
--Lucille Clifton

“These powerful, passionate poems explore the body’s ‘curious, various hungers’ with brave frankness and energy. Their vigor and intelligence ignites revelation. ”
--Naomi Shihab Nye
