Praise for Matthew Zapruder

"Zapruder's poems don't merely attempt beauty; they attain it." --Boston Review

"Matthew Zapruder has a razor eye for the remnants and revenants of modern culture." --The New York Times

"Zapruder's poems have a directness and verve that are reminiscent of Frank O'Hara; they're poems for everyone, everywhere, insisting that everything is subject for poetry, and that all language is poetic language, democratic in its insights and feelings." --NPR

"Zapruder's verse offers solace and an invaluable blueprint for empathy." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"It's the reach, the attention to daily life and the dream world we simultaneously inhabit, that gives Zapruder's work its distinctive force." --Alta Magazine
Praise for I Love Hearing Your Dreams

"These poems are irresistibly original; they feel as strange and true as life itself." --Maggie Smith, author of You Could Make This Place Beautiful

"Have you ever held a book, but knew secretly you were holding a mountain? Or maybe your heart felt like the future galloping in your chest after reading a passage so visceral and full of magic, or so faithfully human it was like you wanted all the words in the world to go home and to leave these poems forever ringing in your ear? That was me when I first encountered, I Love Hearing Your Dreams, a startling book, a resuscitating vision." --Major Jackson, author of Razzle Dazzle and host of "The Slowdown"
