Reviews

There is an unabashed rapture to these poems about ordinary American life in the analog age. How astounding, and how perfectly troubling, to be led through this fearsome, familiar realm of choked silences and violent collisions by an intelligence as deft and buoyant as Matthew Dickman's.--Tracy K. Smith, United States Poet Laureate
A wonderful new poetic voice writing warm and cozy visions of old Portland, Oregon. I loved it.--Gus Van Sant, Academy Award-nominated filmmaker
Tender and troubling, dark and glowing. . . . [F]ull of glimpses of sudden violence and hidden traumas, which often simultaneously mix with tenderness, love and indeed a certain sense of wonder.
[Dickman's] ability to not only recollect but also to relive his childhood in the present moment, as if boy and man coexisted and conversed with each other, manifests a hard-won wisdom. . . . [S]urprisingly affective.
Ferocious. . . . In Dickman's poems, readers observe as the bright-eyed potential of youth is shattered by the devastation of adulthood's onset.
