MEDIA REVIEWS
0;This is wonderful poetry: exuberant, self-assured, instinct with wisdom and passion.1;2;Carolyn Kizer

0;There is a fine strong sense in these poems of real lives being lived in a real world. This is something I greatly prize. And it is all colored, sometimes brightly, by the poet7;s own highly romantic vision of things, so that what we may think we already know ends up seeming rich and strange.1;2;Donald Justice

0;A remarkable book. Without any rhetorical straining, with a disarming witty directness, these poems manage to transform every subject they touch, from love to politics, reaching out from the local and the personal to place the largest issues in the context of feeling. It7;s hard to think of a recent book that succeeds with equal grace in fusing the truth-telling and the lyric impulse, clarity and song, in a way that produces such consistent pleasure and surprise.1;2;Carl Dennis
