Critical Praise

Firer's rich poetry—powerful and beautiful—creates a house whose rooms, by turns restful and invigorating, you will want to admire, borrow from, and revisit. She is a fiercely regional architect who ought to be known widely
The best part about "Milwaukee Does Strange Things To People" is that, because it features almost three decades of work, it allows readers to witness Firer's metamorposis from a young, intellectual spitfires to a wise and reverent woman who's still willing to dip a toe--or three--into the ever-changing lake.
