"They're strong, passionate poems... The love poems are plangent, beautiful and somehow painful... these poems [are] alive and pulsing with human feeling unmediated by anything outside the experience they convey..."
"...a personal style of writing that is instantly recognizable as uniquely hers... [the collection] is at base ambiguous . . . but simultaneously clear and concrete... there isn't a poor poem, or even a mediocre one..."
"In it [String Theory] there is singing, there is dancing to freedom, dancing to the bondage of the self."
—Emmanuel Sigauke, Munyori Reviews
"The poems in Alice Teeter's String Theory are both playful and daring, integrating the concrete, natural world with the emotional forces of our everyday existence."
—Mindy Kronenberg, Book/Mark Quartertly Review
