From Library Journal:

In the apocalyptic landscape of Dubie's 14th book of poems, obsessive memories (including those of his father, a New England minister) fuse with elegies to artistic martyrs (Margaret Fuller, Trakl, Van Gogh). Dubie's speakers distance themselves from accidents, civil war, storms, and bizarre death ("My husband was washing wet sheets . . ./ When he had his heart attack") with a style so exact that the Hieronymus Bosch-like nightmares being offered are made to resemble the commonplace. Dragons "feeding everywhere," a "scare bird," "Squatting cavemen," and half-nude women--sometimes working girls, sometimes goddesses--suggest "the great stone reliquaries of another time." Plumbing the subconscious like pearl divers, these poems intrigue and horrify, but despite the pain, Dubie listens "to the pure/ God rendering voice of a storm."-- Frank Allen, Allentown Coll., Center Valley, Pa.

From Publishers Weekly:

"Catastrophe, disease, death and allied states of uncomfortable consciousness--commonly hallucinatory and religious, heightened and extreme--are the subjects of Dubie's characteristically dark and disquieting 14th collection of poems," observed PW.

"This is a spine-tingling adventure narrative," judged PW. Photos.
