Ana Božičević interviewed at 3:AM Magazine
September 1, 2010 : Tarpaulin Sky Press author Ana Božičević (Stars of the Night Commute, 2009) is interviewed at 3:AM Magazine: "I remember thinking I wasn’t in love with anyone at the time, so there was no real reason for me to stay. Probably the truth is I knew I wasn’t entirely “of Croatia” even then, and so I was free to go. . . . Nostalgia thinks there’s a place where there is no place, and in its honest, touching delusion it’s no different than any other lover."
Verse reviews Ana Božičević’s Stars of the Night Commute
August 4, 2010 : At Verse, Mary Austin Speaker reviews Ana Bozicevic's *Stars of the Night Commute* (Tarpaulin Sky Press, 2009): "Although it is dangerous to make presumptions about the way one’s biography inflects their poetry, I think it’s helpful to consider the conditions of Ana Bozicevic’s native country when she left it. Croatia’s is a history of conflict in which voices speak over each other. Stars of the Night Commute, the author’s first collection of poems, suggests that since her emigration she has been learning how to write her own history while rejecting the very idea of writing history...."
Jacket reviews Ana Božičević’s Stars of the Night Commute
June 8, 2010 : At Jacket, Nicole Mauro reviews Ana Bozicevic's *Stars of the Night Commute* (Tarpaulin Sky Press, 2009): "Though Božičević’s work does terrify, and so, by extension, is rightly ‘about’ terror . . . Stars is more accurately (and happily) about what an émigré does, heart and eyes intact and hungry for the redemptive and the beautiful, after having experienced all that is contrary to the love and kindness (that can be) human beings."

Ana Božičević’s Stars of the Night Commute reviewed at Transversalinflections
March 15, 2010 : Transversalinflections reviews Ana Bozicevic's *Stars of the Night Commute* "Think of the whole book and its sections and its individual poems as a snowglobe that has been shaken up, and where not snow, but objects are floating around in varying connected but wondrous configurations. . . .The poems are no longer primarily linear, but are constellations of ideas that have body and dimensions as well as being open and porous."
After Ellen reviews Božičević’s Stars of the Night Commute
December 23, 2009 : At After Ellen, Heather Aimee O'Neil reviews Ana Bozicevic's *Stars of the Night Commute* (Tarpaulin Sky Press, 2009): "Queer poet Ana Božičević’s first book, Stars of the Night Commute, is an intense and highly lyrical collection of poetry.... Božičević’s work is thought-provoking, inspired and unexpected. Highly recommended."
U of Arizona Poetry Center reviews Ana Božičević’s Stars of the Night Commute
December 19, 2009 : At the University of Arizona Poetry Center's website, Bonnie Jean Michalski reviews Ana Bozicevic's *Stars of the Night Commute* (Tarpaulin Sky Press, 2009): "Emoticons and screennames, curse words, "yawn, blah, blah, schma...", ozone, yellow cab... this book includes it all. Božičević's is not a poetry enamored of the archaic. Following in O'Hara's footsteps, it challenges us to place the stuff of daily life under the adjective 'poetic.'"
