Wading the Trout River, review by Don Precosky, Canadian Book Review Annual

     Wading the Trout River is a mature and intelligent collection of lyric poems mostly dedicated to love and to an examination of gender roles. It celebrates heterosexual romance and sensuality without being heterosexist. The poems are also not in any way narrowly personal. They spread their wings to draw on religion ("The Tree of Knowledge" and "The Tree of Life"), pop psychology ("Venus Envy"), and the minutiae of everyday life ("Letters of the Alphabet"). This is a wonderful, touching, insightful book.

Interviews
There is a quality in her work which makes all her poems hers, but Zonailo’s style does differ. Compendium is a collection of short, lyrical poetry; Zone 5 of prose. Each book is an extension of her poetic exploration and a separate expression.
