Reviews
"In many ways--the range of interests, quality of language, the attention to rhythm--Prior's work is a kind of blend of P. K. Page and Karen Solie, but I make those comparisons only to say that his work is already polished and self-assured." --Jay Ruzesky, The Malahat Review
"Model Disciple comes alive in its beautiful precision of detail, defamiliarizing language, resonant music, and deep intimacy. These poems are lyrical accounts of the natural world intersecting with the manmade. They are viscerally present, and felt, written to illuminate and endure." --Hannah Sanghee Park, author, The Same-Different
"With Model Disciple, Michael Prior launches, fully-armed, into the fray, taking on the topics of love, loss, war and cultural identity with a combination of fierceness and delicacy so rare in a first collection. Prior's book swarms with presences both animal and human, as well as spectral; it bristles with texture and glows with unforgettable images that are laden with both ghastliness and grace." --Alexandra Oliver, author, Meeting the Tormentors in Safeway and Let the Empire Down
