Writing Rising from the Plains, McPhee remarked before his 1989 reading at the Poetry Center, “I got into a dialogue with [Miss Ethel Waxham]—writer to writer, author and subject—speaking back and forth across most of a century. I couldn’t resist this duet. There was so much wit and elegance in the way she put things.”
