“Imagine The Inferno reconfigured as a cross between one of Joseph Cornell's boxes and a Rube Goldberg drawing: an infernal machine designed to produce the uncomfortable pleasures of wit's disjunctions, gallows humor, wry nostalgias . . . That's the landscape and tone of Keplinger's collection of very short prose poems.”—Jordan Smith, The Antioch Review

“Each poem in David Keplinger’s The Prayers of Others is a world unto itself—and the whole of them crated for shipment to the wilds of the imagination, with stickers from Central Europe, where this poet once lived. There are treasures of mystical lucidity too, nestled with the rest, and upon opening these, one feels blessed, and in the presence of a poet who has entered the house of Max Jacob. What a wonderful gift to us all.”—Carolyn Forché
