Plainly put, Patrick Carrington’s poetry shines. Rise, Fall, and Acceptance is nothing short of an excellent achievement. Aside from its obvious value as an eclectic and entertaining collection of poetry, it also could be used to teach aspiring poets the importance of word choice, the line break, and the use of stanzas. As an editor, poet, nonfiction author and writing instructor, I have too little time to read others’ works for pleasure, but I will always make an exception for Carrington. —Harvey Stanbrough Editor, The Raintown Review, Author, Beyond the Masks, nominated in 2005 for the National Book Award The lyric narratives of this book are grounded in a strong sense of the past and fundamental respect for the events that shape our lives. Patrick Carrington has a feel for the thoughts and emotions that often pass unrevealed. I can feel this poet’s love of language and his deep sense of truth in every poem. —Bob HicokAbout the Author:
