Evie Shockley wrote of And Aeneas Stares into Her Helmet: “Aeneas won me over with its intelligence, wit, and unpredictability. I loved the depth and breadth of the poet's allusions: wars throughout history—from the Trojan War to the ‘War on Terror’ and the Iraq War—are invoked through literary allusions to Virgil, Whitman, and the Bible, as well as pop culture references to phenomena like the Beatles and reality TV.”

Higgins translates contemporary Brazilian writing and blogs on Brazil. She teaches at several colleges in the San Francisco Bay Area.
