Reviews

"Hayes's work is terrific . . . it's grounded in narrative even as it's linguistically dense and playful, with allusions to formal verse traditions and to pop culture new and old." - The New York Times

"Lighthead displays a riffing, wildly relentless insistence and astonishing brio . . . Hayes breaks down categories and builds up forms with acrobatic glee." - Megan O'Rourke, The Year's Best Poetry, npr.org.
