Reviews
"A brilliant collection."
--Washington Post
"A wonderful, thoughtful, sly, and moving collection."
--San Francisco Chronicle
"Deft observation, droll wit, and outrageous assertions are whizzing past."
--Bloomsbury Review
"Lovely poems--lovely in a way almost nobody's since Roethke's are. Limpid, gently and consistently startling, more serious than they seem, they describe all the worlds that are and were and some others besides."
--John Updike
