Reviews

"Constantine's most ambitious, most courageous, and most fully realized collection yet."

--James Cushing, The Los Angeles Review of Books


"Dementia, My Darling is a powerful book yet it is written with empathy and respect. It shows us a different way to extract meaning when it is not readily perceived. Like Dante, the poet asks you to accompany him on this exploration of an unfamiliar terrain. Like Dante, a reader passes through this world and receives a different perspective of the landscape we thought we knew. Such is the power of Brendan Constantine's art."

--Quill & Parchment
