John Vanderslice reviews Blessings and Curses in Santa Fe Writers Project Journal. December 10, 2009. “It is rare to find a volume of poetry that stares so directly and honestly at life as does Anne Whitehouse’s new collection, Blessings and Curses. As the title suggests, Whitehouse intent is to encompass both the broadest and meanest aspects of human existence as they are revealed to her in the ordinary unfolding of her days...” more...

Reviews of Bear in Mind:

Alabama Writers Forum, September 2011.

Poems in Anne Whitehouse's first collection, published under her maiden name Anne Cherner, received the Mademoiselle poetry prize, the Joan Gray Untermeyer Poetry Award from Radcliffe College, and the Hackney Literary Award from Birmingham-Southern College.

"Anne Cherner [Whitehouse]'s poems combine the metaphysical with a vivid visual sense...The beauty and control of these poems are unusual in a poet still under thirty."
[Source: Radcliffe Quarterly, December, 1982.]
