Reviews

This is a wonderful book. . . for looking at ourselves as a country beginning a new century. This is the real deal: the kitchen table conversation. These poems need to be read. I can't think of a book more timely.--Kenneth McClane "Cornell University "
Imagine that all the poets in this book are speaking to each other in a single room-an auditorium or classroom-having the discussion about race our country finds it so hard to have. Jim Daniels takes chances with his own poetry, and he takes chances with this anthology, fine chances, so page through, stay awhile, listen to all these vibrant American voices.--Mike Rose "University of California, Los Angeles "
