Reviews

"Flynn's poems unnerve and devastate; theirs is a terrible beauty, indeed." --"Cleveland Plain Dealer"

"Each word is a lit match, a thrown stone, a howling blast, a choking torrent. Flynn has forged daringly intimate and clarion poems of conscience." --"Booklist"

"[Flynn] sets for himself the task of discovering poetry appropriate to our time, an era of sanctioned torture and protracted wars . . . With "The Captain Asks for a Show of Hands", Flynn faces some of the difficult questions and confusions of our time, and he challenges poetry to face itself, as well." --"The Houston Chronicle"
