Reviews

"A book about continuity and endings--marked by gratitude for the connections and illusions that keep consciousness aloft, as well as attempts to imagine the end of consciousness and the forces that both allow for and erode all life. . . . [Shapiro's] vision of reality has grown to include the rich, imperfect images of reality we create, and as his poems have come to enact the intricate, reflexive vitality of such creation--even now, maybe especially now, as they increasingly contemplate the total loss of vitality."--Jonathan Farmer "Poetry"
"Shapiro is a master of the middle tone (as well as most of the formal techniques in poetry's capacious toolbox), and he probes the deeper places of the self with a skilled psychologist's gentle persistence. A delicately disquieting collection."--David Orr "New York Times"
