Reviews

Ovid himself might have taken notice of this volume. It's one thing to turn a woman into a tree, another more advanced thing to transform fifty frames of the Zapruder film into as many sonnets. LIMOUSINE, MIDNIGHT BLUE is a radical display of poetry's ability to freeze time, to catch fugitive--and here, disputed--moments in the amber of form.
---Billy Collins
