Reviews

"Bicycle Thieves concerns itself with memory and reflection, and with examining the scale of a life from the perspective of one's 60s. The highlight of the book is 'Life Sentences, ' a marvelous sequence of reflective haiku that accumulate to represent a life." -- Quill & Quire, starred review

"Wonderful poetry! Robert Lowell would be thrilled to discover himself so beautifully encased in another's language. Mary di Michele exudes an air both exquisite and tough." -- Joyce Carol Oates, Numéro Cinq

"The poet presents Montreal as more than an identifier or a signal post. Throughout the collection, much like Leonard Cohen and Mordecai Richler's use of one of Canada's most iconic cities, di Michele makes Montreal her own musical style, chorus, refrain, and harmony." -- Prism International
