Reviews

"[T]hese poems are a showcase for Pardlo's ample and agile mind, his courageous social conscience, and his mighty voice."--Tracy K. Smith
..".a thrilling, brilliant, and deeply moving ride."--Nick Flynn
I read Digest. And was knocked out. The poems contain multitudes: Brooklyn, fatherhood, academia, music. They sizzle ("I was reborn at the crime scene"). They bite ("Nothing holds a family together like irony and a grudge"). Sometimes they make you laugh out loud ("I finally friended my brother")."--Tracy K. Smith "Head Butler"
