Erasable Walls is a series of elegant personal meditations on the always evolving self. These beautifully crafted poems show a degree of mastery that's rare in a first book. Though quiet and subtle, Larsen's voice is also nervy and truth-telling, with considerable cumulative power.

Reviews / Endorsements



“He leads us in rather gently. The earlier poems appear to concern, indeed to construct, what we so often call, with a grimace of wrong recognition, family values. How disingenuously the poet's persona muses upon the responsibilities of fatherhood, of filial piety, of those initiations into man's estate which involve certain severances, certain deliberate repudiations.”—Richard Howard
