"James Harms' poems have always posited the dailiness of any revelation. . . . He wants to remind us that many of the grandest things available to us can be had for even the smallest gesture."—David St. John

"Over the course of five books of poetry, James Harms has created a poetic that weds the personal and public and moves deftly from narrative to lyric, often blurring the lines between these modes."—Shara McCallum, The Antioch Review
