"Dina, I have enjoyed reading The Heart of the City. Am greatly impressed with its range – geographical, tonal, imaginative. It’s admirable how you’ve gathered such a wealth of strong material in a relatively compact container.” Allan Briesmaster, Poet, Publisher, and Editor.
“Dina Ripsman Eylon's voice is pure lyricism, individualistic and non-conforming. The speaker's quest for love is absolute. Yet, tender words can be cunning, misguiding, the embrace loose, and separation finite. The speaker's seemingly naive stance about the existence of love is often contrasted by a deep sense of alienation, continuing the gloomy traditional theme of urban literatures.” Edith Covensky, Poet, and Professor, Wayne State University.

"The narrator of these poems “looked for love/in the outskirts of a loveless city.” She found warmth and erotic touch, but also betrayal and loneliness. These are often hard to untangle, as the poems show. The author has written earlier about feminism and religion, Jewish mysticism, and women in Judaism, and some references to these themes appear in her poems; these allusions (as in “Envy,” “Homeland,” and “In the Heart of the City”) give the poetry more depth and extend its meaning beyond one person’s story. Many of these poems have a kind of radiance, despite their sadness." Ellen S. Jaffe, Poet, Author, Teacher
