"Wry, tender, musical and unsentimental. . . . In these poems, the visible world radiates meaning, memory becomes palpable, and loss is acknowledged."
--Robert Pinsky, 3-time United States Poet Laureate

"Common Grace is an uncommon book, elegant, at times tough-minded, also moving."
--Ha Jin, National Book Award-winning author of Waiting

--Gail Mazur, author of Land's End: New and Selected Poems
