Reviews / Endorsements

"Jon Anderson is a craftsman with an excellent ear and eye for subtle effects. His language is always rich; and his bizarre imagination inevitably takes the reader one step further than he anticipated."—James Tate

"He has the wit, grace and flamboyance that win readers. What will hold his reader, I think, is a greater reward: a benign, visionary voice, consoling in presence even when the dreams it tell are of despair."—George Starbuck

"For thirty years Jon Anderson has written the most heartbreaking poems in American poetry, and he has always had a Master's touch."—David St. John

JON ANDERSON grew up outside of Boston and lived there his first twenty years. He settled in Tuscon, Arizona, in 1976, where he teaches at the University of Arizona. He has published six books, including Day Moon, Looking for Jonathan and The Milky Way. Carnegie Mellon University Press has, during the past two years, reissued Anderson's In Sepia and Death & Friends in its Classic Contemporary Series. Mr. Anderson has received a Guggenheim Fellowship, two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, and the Shelley Memorial Award for lifetime achievement from the Poetry Society of America.
