Review:

There are so many good poems here . . . that the future of American poetry looks bright, indeed.” Booklist (starred review)



These young’ poets’ seriousness of intent, and their freedom from the solipsism of many who came immediately before them, bode well for American poetry in the new century. By and large, the kids are alright.” Literal Latte

I invite the reader to join me in  . . . discover[ing] just how real, how rich, how rewarding our new poetry might be.” Richard Howard, from the Foreword
