Reviews

"A major poet with a gentle, comic soul"--Roger Rosenblatt
"There's a dreaminess to the collection...the sense of conversations with people from prior parts of life in moments just before waking."--Boston Globe
"In his poetry, Schwartz creates a warm and likable persona who uses verse as a means of dealing with a difficult world. Reading Little Kisses is reassuring - and that is a valuable attribute given the times we are living in."
--The Arts Fuse
"Despite the sometimes-grave themes, [the collection] is uplifting and joyous. All in all, it is a very lively mix of poems that move with subtlety, wisdom, good humor, and sly erudition. There is great musicality here and lots of rewarding lyrical surprises."
--Consequence Magazine
