“An exceptional book of poems, both resonant and immediate, historically demanding and yet always lively and readable.” – Anne Stevenson, Arts North

“His poetry is ruminative, the product of a keen mind writing itself memos about life and art and time… His sexy moments, and their opposites, also pleased me.” – Peter Porter, Observer
