Poetry. "Mirov's poems are like dead soul dispatches from an emotional robot. Contained in them is the terrible recognition of the mere materiality of the universe—and that somehow arising from that is an irrational attachment to friends, loves, and a man named Ben Mirov. The poems are an attempt to speak of these things, often opening into imaginative spaces tinged with the absurd. The continued disconnect between what the speaker describes and what he may or may not feel is funny, until it's revealed to also be sad."—Dan Magers

"Ben Mirov writes,'The high-fives are meant to signify celebratory attitudes and reinforce the sense of comradery we feel in the wake of our semi-athletic achievement.' For the 'semi-athletic' achiever in all of us, HIDER ROSER gives free $12 high-fives."—Amanda Nadelberg

"It seems like HIDER ROSER was written by Ben Mirov. His name appears on the cover and in the poems the book contains. However, he did not write this book. I did. Ben Mirov's function in the process was more like an android, receiving messages from an alien source. If you ever actually meet the vessel I know as Ben Mirov, his personality and conversational capacity will underwhelm you. I hope these poems will not."—the author of HIDER ROSER
