Reviews

"I admire this lucid, vivid book very much. Jay Liveson has the ability to write poems that are, by turns, serious, funny, wild, intense, formal, free and always, always deeply human." - Thomas Lux

"I like the language, the strangeness, the complexity of life, the dark vision, and the portraits about aspects I find completely original." - Catherine Bowman
