George Elliott Clarke says of Spine: "[Press's] ultra-clear diction and satirical reading-twixt-lines recall Margaret Atwood, but Press has more whimsy and less menace." (Halifax Chronicle Herald)

Spine has been shortlisted by the League of Canadian Poets for the Pat Lowther Memorial Award for the best book of poetry in the past year by a Canadian woman.
