Reviews

"Reading Ken Fifer's poetry was like walking into someone's living room and learning about the person through the things he or she accumulated. . . . Ken Fifer's poems are not only lyrical, they are mellifluous. . . . There is a formal quality to all of the poems in The Moss that Rides on the Back of the Rock, but it is not restrictive. The formal quality is free, unique, special - a true work of craftsmanship. Ken Fifer has put together a strong selection of poetry, a poetry that needs to be read by as many people as possible." -- Tim Gavin in Verse: Poetry and Poetics

". . . filled with a rich and graceful wit, a loving attention to small places and ordinary human coming and going. In poem after poem we are convinced that this is what the heart feels and knows to be true." -- Harry Humes

"Witty, thoughtful, with great imaginative and emotional range, Ken Fifer's poems are filled with honed words and delightfully unexpected twists, the "mind at play" with a language that is sensuous and sinuous and authentically his own. This collection is a joy to read." -- Len Roberts
