A Hand in Place of a Hand is haunting by its simplicity. Musgrove's language is frontal, filled with ordinary objects, many from his life on a farm, that stand alone until the immediacy of these images creates its own magical tension with the subtlety of what is unsaid to become overpowering like an exquisite still life painting seducing the reader into a private sphere of universally experienced feelings about birth, illness, intimacy and death
----Laurence Tancredi, MD, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, NYU School of Medicine, Hardwired Behavior: What Neuroscience Reveals about Morality
Jonathan Musgrove not only makes poetry credible in the world, his critical narratives make us more human. The energy and power in these truthful stories come from a sharp focus he tends, in daily life, to the living and the dying. This mental state, this thoughtfulness, improves our literary lives. Musgrove s investigative poetry turns a window on the force and tenacity of characters who sustain us, and his lyricism will wrap your heart around these poems.
