"This is a sneaky collection in that it wrecks you incrementally, in small doses. You'll feel only a vague throbbing until the pain takes you. Despite the assonance, the poems themselves sound quiet, but when added together, Hardy creates a web of sound we can't ignore; he venerates a host of ghosts that will haunt us long after we've put the collection down."--Casey Thayer "Rattle"
