Editorial Reviews


Have you ever discovered beauty where you did not expect to find it? Oblations . . . invites the reader to consider various aspects of daily life in a new way. --The Courier News (Somerset, NJ)

There is a brazen weight to the silent loves and anxieties of his country people; his priests deal with everyday troubles; his ball-players are Homeric in their rituals and their prowess and their lack of introspection. --Dappled Things

"Oblations distills that which defines a person down to a paragraph, and this emotional ore is precisely what the collection mines. Inside this book, consequently, handfuls of novels hide"-- The Collagist

From the Author

61 prose poems.
