Reviews

" The poems in "Furious Lullaby "contain as much mischief as they do music, surprising the reader with a chorus of unexpected voices-- a scapula, the dead, the Devil-- and weaving those moments into a series of heartbreaking aubades that sing to the gorgeous melancholy of memory and loss." -- Rigoberto Gonzalez, author of "Other Fugitives and Other Strangers"

" These poems have a quiet eroticism, a voice that makes you want to lean in closer. Oliver de la Paz' s seductive lyricism draws us in; we find the beauty of the body, and its desires mark us as creatures of loneliness and mystery. The poems are meant not merely to explore this paradox, but to comfort, to sing in the dark, to do what poems do-- find sublimity and timelessness. This is fierce and memorable work." -- Beckian Fritz Goldberg, author of "The Book of Accident"
