Reviews
ON STEVEN CRAMER'S PREVIOUS BOOKS



"In Listen, Cramer tries to distill a "bedlam of thought." He is, by turns, matter of fact, nailing the sometimes-funny sometimes-sad absurdity of the world. . . and warmly sensual."-The Boston Globe



"Steven Cramer employs an innovative strategy, opening himself to the space outside of language by pushing up against its limitations. Clangings is a restless, ambitious enterprise."-Poets' Quarterly


"Goodbye to the Orchard provides page after page of graceful inquisition and controlled musicality."-Harvard Review
