Reviews

"In these jumpy, surprising poems, Thomas Dooley treads fearlessly as he reveals the submerged secrets of a family and gives utterance to the erotic pleasures and pains of love. Trespass is an intense, eye-opening debut." -- Billy Collins, former Poet Laureate of the United States

"Thomas Dooley's Trespass pierces and heals simultaneously. These terse tropes of lyrical compression, personal and universal, seem naturally calibrated and expand within the reader's mind--every word emotionally exact." -- Yusef Komunyakaa, Pulitzer Prize winning poet

"Pierces and heals simultaneously....Trespass sings the music of now, shaped on the lathe of experience, and through the pleasures of physical knowledge, revelatory imagery, and imagination, this collection transports us." -- Yusef Komunyakaa, Pulitzer Prize winning poet

"Dooley's new voice is a full, grand-sweeping appraisal of the banalities that domestic life has to offer... A masterful debut." -- Booklist

"Tender, nuanced, angry, and answerless..." -- Publishers Weekly
