Reviews

"Benz's poems travel by bus, car, and by way of the poet's thumb, one eye cocked to the litter of our lives, one ear cupped to the particular cadence of our own American tongue. If Benz tracks the rough-and-tumble of the American road, he finds there is also its mitigating music and sings that song."

-Stephen Haven, author of The Last Sacred Place in North America


"There is a maturity to the voice here, and a beautiful resonance to the words."

-Virgil Suarez, judge's citation for the 2022 Ron Rash Award in Poetry


"Stephen Benz's poems, rich in sense of place, take us on a compelling journey. Benz evokes the spirits of ancient poets, like Bashō, and draws connections to the contemporary road. His poems explore various crossroads and take us across the Great Divide, even as they deftly challenge physical and spiritual divides."

-Diane Thiel, author of Questions from Outer Space
