"A complete, winding exploration of the role of the individual living both among a society of sufferers and against the backdrop of time. Shelton tries to provide light among the darkness, and does so not only by lightening the situation and wrapping himself in humor, but by staring at the dark long enough for his eyes to adjust to the point where he can make out objects in the shadows."
--The Adirondack Review
"By turns comic, surreal, prophetic, Richard Shelton's poems spring from that place in the mind where high seriousness and play are one. The ordinary opens into an extraordinary lament for our human and political condition. And yet I feel too the joy of invention in these lines, that spirited persistence of the lyric voice that makes our darkness tolerable. The Last Person to Hear Your Voice is a compelling and welcome collection."
