Reviews / Endorsements



“Following the laughter and the compassionate pith of a dauntless imagination, these poems beeline or zig-zag always to the jugular, the dramatic and unarguable revelation of the heart.”—June Jordan

“There’s a knife-edge clarity under the voice, intricate rhythm patterns threaded through the lines, an improvisational feeling that doesn’t pull against the poetry. There isn’t any linguistic sleight of hand happening in his poetry; the emotion and motion feel grounded to the earth.”—Yusef Komunyakaa



CORNELIUS EADY has published four other books of poetry, including The Gathering of My Name (1991), You Don’t Miss Your Water (1995), and The Autobiography of a Jukebox (1996). He teaches and directs The Poetry Center at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
