Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By A Customer on February 20, 1998
Format: Paperback
Richard Cecil's dry wit shines in this volume of poetry. From cold sweat of interviewing in "San Francisco Modern Language Convention" to contemplating death vs. just living on in "Writing with Olive", _Alcatraz_ offers elegance that says "right on, man" that grows sweeter with time.
