"Richly sensual images.... [Ondaatje] contracts the narrative to a few concrete images, giving his verse a mysterious reticence." --The New York Times Book Review "Poems that are virtual hybrids of the contemporary and the ancient." --Boston Book Review "Smooth poetic lines.... Another finely polished Ondaatje gem." -- Time Out-New York "Extremely beautiful." --Robert Hass, The Washington Post
