Reviews
"X in the Tickseed is a gorgeous, riveting meditation on memory, mortality, art-making, and the complications of living. Equal parts lyric, narrative, and philosophical, Ed Falco's poems remind us that the world is beautiful and terrible in equal measures."--Erika Meitner
"In its masterful control of language and form, its clarity and layered complexity, this book is itself a work of beauty, one that will last for a long while."--Eric Nelson
"Both smart and heartfelt, these poems are meant to be not nibbled but devoured, again and again."--David Kirby
