Reviews

No American poet wears his genius as lightly as Jackson, whose poems here reach new heights of companionable style.--John Freeman
Jackson's eye is laser-sharp and wry...Throughout the book, [his] weaving of mythology and literary references serve as context for confrontations with personal ghosts.
