The Thread Box is a beautifully balanced, compelling collection of poetry filled with thematic and imagistic richness. … This volume speaks to the intensely personal while simultaneously invoking the universal, thereby revealing the consummate artistry of the poet.

The poetry in The Thread Box demonstrates the same literary perfection that made McCash an award-winning novelist. Her verse casts vivid images in soft rhythms and reminds us of the things that make us human.”
