Reviews

"Contemplative and lyrical. . . . 'When I cannot find you / I give your name to everything.' Such poems employ the periphery as an active, sometimes disquieting space from which to imagine. Such poems disarm me into sorrow, into hope."--Aracelis Girmay, author of The Black Maria and Kingdom Animalia
-- (02/27/2017)
"Poems in this book plunge you, without warning, from a mattress on the floor, a village bus stop, or a fishermen's boat into the depth of human aloneness. . . . Len Verwey writes: 'You need to breathe / in stone, breathe out a flower.' He accomplishes this mission in his book: breathing in history and landscape, he breathes out powerful, fervent lyricism."--Valzhyna Mort, author of Collected Body and Factory of Tears: A Lannan Literary Selection-- (02/27/2017)
