Displays an almost child-like wonder in the variety and slippage of language, alongside an adult sensibility of its boundless possibilities and dangers...Here are some of Laird's most successful and mature poems.
A happy marriage of intellect and economy... Laird's observations in these precision-tooled poems are deft and graceful.--Michael Robbins
Masterful...a work of scholarship and a labor of love.--Michael Goodwin
Streetwise, edgy and downright cool.... History, Greek myths, personal gossip, library carrel graffiti and the general ephemera of contemporary urban existence all find their way into [Flynn's] elegant assemblages.--Troly Jollimore
