Reviews

“I felt throughout that this is a magical volume of poems that asks us to consider what the poet calls ‘stumbling blocks,’ those many physical, temporal, and spiritual interruptions to our passage through a landscape and a life.” —David St. John, author of The Last Troubadour: New and Selected Poems?
