"As Lorrie Moore succinctly puts it, “writing is both the excursion into and the excursion out of one’s life.” "Looking for Polaris," Dawn Laurente Marfil’s debut collection of autobiographical narratives, is remarkable for the way it oscillates almost breathlessly between the confessional and the commentary, with metaphor serving as the fragile and scintillant bridge between these experiential realms, whose common ground is memory—here at once invigorated and disabused by the transfigurings of an exuberant, humorous, and reflexive imagination. In essay after essay, we are presented memoir pieces that appear unforgiving in their candor and hyperbole, and yet their deeper truth is always already implicit in the desirous investment of the verbal gesture itself: the interest —and the clemency— that art extends, again and again, towards life." - J. Neil C. Garcia
