"With his stunning eye for detail, with his ability to manipulate voice for dramatic expressiveness, with his skill in weaving in and out of a range of styles from the subtle impressionistic to the overly dramatic, Cooley is one of our most distinctive American poets."—Prairie Schooner

A reissuing of The Van Gogh Notebook, poems by Peter Cooley.

"Cooley finds occasion for celebration in the minute and circumstantial events of day-to-day living . . . [his] obsession with interpreting each aspect of the ‘miraculous ordinary’ forms the most distinctive feature of his verse."—The Gettysburg Review
