Review:

“Amazing. This collection shows a wise choice and a consistent high level of achievement-not to mention what a joy it is to read. I don't think another press could do this.”
--Gerald Stern

"Young or old, each reader is sure to find a poem that will strike him or her in a personal way. What stands out most in many of these poems is how easy they are to understand."
--The Pitt News
