Reviews

"His best book yet...accessible and surprisingly powerful poems....you sense that Koethe slowly approaches death the way that he does life--with an unusual and infectious lightness."--Time Out New York
"Always thoughtful and heartfelt, Koethe's poems have become simply heartbreaking. Koethe...writes meditative, introspective poems that have long encouraged comparisons to Wallace Stevens."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
