“Listen to this poet. Really, Listen. ... Everything in this poet’s care is relevant, everything is important, everything is immortal.”—Thomas Wappat, ForeWord Reviews

Reviews / Endorsements

“Hugh Seidman’s flexible, deft prosody, and his wry, bittersweet address to the sad, foolish predicaments of contemporary American life, are proof, yet again, of his importance. In an age of what Henry James called ‘tremendous trash,’ his work fairly shines with authenticity and integrity.”—Gilbert Sorrentino
