MEDIA REVIEWS
"This poet is a good storyteller. He knows what will interest you, and he doesn't present himself as transcendental. . . . I like the way he talks about a dozen things in one poem."--Robert Bly
"Frank Gaspar has arrived, in this book, at an adult voice of startling presence and power, a voice at once humble and confident, doubting and authoritative . . . . he returns us to poetry's perennial, inexhaustible power: the old verities of the self's engagement with love and time, with meaning and chaos, are shaped here into something alive, something generous, selfless, and new."--Mark Doty
"In Frank Gaspar's beautiful and exacting book, "A Field Guide to the Heavens," is a compassed and sculptured map that leads to what is purely human. There aren't any abstract angels here, only the breath of quest and raw life--from the symbolic gecko to the mythic Apostle Paul and Caesar. This collection is highly democratic and spiritual, where George Herbert is only a few pages away from Allen Ginsberg. Gaspar's material is composed of the stuff we are made of: an approximation of the old, need-driven songs of the spirit and flesh shaped out of imagination and autobiography."--Yusef Komunyakaa
