Editorial Reviews

Review

"...suddenly the world is rendered profoundly unstable in these haunted and haunting poems." -- Gregory Orr

"Perfect Disappearance is the record of an odd, courageous, and very gifted consciousness, whose witness I admire with all my heart." -- Jean Valentine

“Perfect Disappearance is the record--so far--of an odd, courageous, and very gifted consciousness, whose witness I admire... -- Jean Valentine

From the Back Cover

Praise for At the Gate (Provincetown Arts Press, 1995)

"...These short poems, by turns savage, wry, mordantly witty, tender, stern, deluded, sane, read like a series of fragments, bits of mosaic; they duplicate on the page a sense of the past's being, piece by piece, recovered; they convey, devastatingly, the moment of a pattern's emerging; the little scenes and vignettes, the suspect tools of memory, cohere heart-stoppingly and absolutely into a narrative which fuses the damaged body to the divided heart..." (Louise Glück, from The Forbidden, Proofs and Theories; Essays on Poetry (Ecco Press)

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
"...The chaos and calm basic to the collection intersect throughout the book, interrogating the boundaries of a presented life and a life under the surface. "Ourself behind ourself, concealed-- / Should startle most--" wrote Emily Dickinson. Perfect Disappearance startles exactly so."
