Reviews / Endorsements

“This is a sneaky collection in that it wrecks you incrementally, in small doses. You’ll feel only a vague throbbing until the pain takes you. Despite the assonance, the poems themselves sound quiet, but when added together, Hardy creates a web of sound we can’t ignore; he venerates a host of ghosts that will haunt us long after we’ve put the collection down.”—Casey Thayer, Rattle

“These spare, clear-eyed verses are remarkable for the ease with which they reveal a poet of ambitious intelligence and wellhoned craft. Myronn Hardy has written a collection of quietly combustible poems that remind us of just what a gifted poet’s deftly judicious craft can produce in music and emotion.”—Kwame Dawes
