Editorial Reviews


"Waters excels at stark-eyed, honest elegies - for an influential teacher who killed himself; for Johnny Cash; and for the poet's own father - rendered in the strong free verse that is Water's signature." — Publishers Weekly

“Re-reading Gospel Night, the latest collection by poet Michael Waters, is to take a poetic journey in both time and space…‘All objects have their place in the world,’ Waters reminds us in ‘Dog Space,’ might be the clearest aesthetic statement of this book…Michael Waters gives us the momentary glimpses of heaven we need in a profane world.”—Gently Read Literature

"In Gospel Night… Waters continues to push his work forward, enlarging our sense of what is possible each time ... Few poets pack a line like Waters.”—Poetry International
