Reviews

"With [The Poetry Remedy] on your shelf, you'll never be at a loss for comforting words."
--Book Page

"Truly a marvelous collection . . . There is balm for the soul, fire for the belly, a cooling compress for the fevered brow, solace for the wounded, an arm around the lonely shoulder--the whole collection is a matchless compound of hug, tonic and kiss."
--Stephen Fry

"The book is delightful; it rightly resituates poetry in relation to its biggest and most serious task: helping us to live and die well."
--Alain de Botton

"Healing for the heart and soul. I keep my copy with the brandy and aspirin."
--Jeanette Winterson, author of Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit
