Praise for Radio Tooth by Paul Jenkins:

“Jenkins navigates poetically perilous territory by remaining more or less in his own backyard, yet his revolutions on the “treadmill of sadness and consolation” produce luminous, resonant lyrics.” —Brian Henry, Harvard Review

“Jenkins’ resolutions and truces are indomiably surreal; these poems — on geography, genetics, faith, and loss — are jokes and non-jokes at once, dazzingly off, yet pure reportage. — “Briefly Noted” The New Yorker

“Jenkins’ poems are literally impulsive, they move in abrupt bursts of intelligent feeling, and they are aimed more at emotional fidelity than at achieving a rational, balanced perspective... These energetic poems halt and plunge forward in associative bytes, phrasing which is both ireegular and rhythmic... Radio Tooth is a collection of poems as fresh as mouthwash, spoken in a voice at once spontaneous, lyrical, and human. —Tony Hogland, Puerto del Sol

PAUL JENKINS teaches at Hampshire College and is an editor of The Massachusetts Review.
