Reviews / Endorsements

“The poems in this collection amount to a powerful affirmation of life whatever the circumstances. They speak of the hunger for love and for joy which is sometimes found in the darkest places. This is the central message of the book. The poems are written with a passion and an honesty that can only be a force for good.”—Neil Leadbeater, Galatea Resurrects

“Here is an homage to our beautiful failures; for once, then, as another poet said—for once, then, something.”—Alicia Ostriker
