Reviews

"Seshadri's is a voice that speaks honestly, without any patronizing, a voice that wants to see in each of us 'the free person, the truly free, free from time, space'. . . . The only way to speak in our time's moment. Or, any moment."--Ilya Kaminsky

"Vijay Seshadri conjures the poems in That Was Now, This Is Then out of absence, fashions language from the vast and wild silences surrounding our living. Seshadri's poetry presses into and recedes from our gaze all in the same gesture. . . . Inconceivably, Seshadri's best yet."--Kaveh Akbar

"Vijay Seshadri is arch and canny, a maestro of noir ironies. . . . These are poems of lacerating self-awareness and stoic compassion. That Was Now, This Is Then is a book we need, right now."--Rosanna Warren
