Reviews

"In Rik Emmett we have a poet of wry and wise observation, one who questions the Dance of Life not with spite but with deep curiosity. The joust of his arguments and piercing laments take the reader into personal introspection. Those who tilt toward revelation and reinvention will find on these pages both a home and a kindred spirit." -- Jane Christmas, author of Open House: A Life in Thirty-Two Moves
"Rik Emmett is someone who has always sought out new modes of expression, new kinds of music. I don't know if poetry is always a natural progression from hard rock and jazz, but it's clear Rik has found an inspiring vocal register in verse. Those who have followed his career will recognize his wit and irreverence but might notice a new tone of introspection emerging in these pages. His fans everywhere will be delighted." -- Adam Sol, author of Broken Dawn Blessings and How a Poem Moves: A Field Guide for Readers of Poetry
"Reinvention is a captivating glimpse deep into the life and soul of one of our beloved rock 'n' roll heroes. With sharp wit, engaging storytelling and an out-an-out vulnerability that will take you by surprise, drawing the tears right out of you, Rik Emmett has written a beautiful collection of poems that bravely define what it means to love and live fully." -- Emm Gryner, three-time Juno nominee and author of The Healing Power of Singing: Raise Your Voice, Change Your Life
