Reviews / Endorsements

“In the Evening of No Warning takes risks born of a passion for poetry to do what no poem can: to reclaim us from loss; to restore ourselves as whole, at home in time, loved, and loving. The result is sometimes somber, sometimes exhilarating. From the very opening it reminds us that life is always risky business, all the more for a middle-aged man with wife and kids who has 'given hostages to fortune,' yet who still burns with the memory of past lives—and who gathers fitful hints of another, more radiant life just beyond us.”—Stan Sanvel Rubin, Water-Stone

“Kevin Clark’s new volume of poetry, In the Evening of No Warning, wears the anxious velvet mantle of Time gone magical with sleights of hand. What vanishes is us. Yet, the very passing itself, musical with its children’s hour, becomes the unthinkable and sublime refuge that all the local nostalgias gather about. Many of these poems are altogether sweet and perfect. This is a wonderful book.”—Norman Dubie
