Reviews / Endorsements

“From the urban blight of downtown Detroit to the remnants of tectonic plate shiftings, that is, from human-made disasters to natural ones, the bet finds beauty in the workings of nature. Even when nature seems to be destructive, there is beauty. Even when one is nurtured by a decaying city, there are urges to be elsewhere, and in that elsewhere is a form of identification.”—Gary Metras, Small Press Review

“Most poets today only dream of reaching the wide popular audiences that M.L. Liebler reaches so easily with his work, which is made up of hard-hitting litanies grounded in history and folk roots. Liebler emerges as a unique and valuable force in the rebuilding of the bridge between poetry and music. Any fresh collection of his work is a real event, one to really rattle our seismographs.”—X. J. Kennedy
