Reviews

"As funny and fresh as it is tragic and undeceived, "Falling Water ranks with Wallace Stevens' "Auroras of Autumn as one of the profoundest meditations on existence ever formulated by an American poet."-- John Ashbery "To describe with uncompromising candor the inner life of a man adrift in the waning of the 20th century is one thing, but to do it without a shred of self-pity is another. Koethe, with a riveting and limpid intelligence, manages to do both."-- Mark Strand
