Editorial Reviews


"When David Biespiel tempers his 'bared teeth' voice with a commitment to the things, and not just the atmospheres, of this world, he can register sharp portraits of people, in relationships and alone, in all their bitter, beautiful want."―Poetry Magazine

"In his book about regret, longing, and loss, Biespiel explores the intricacies of relationships between men and women in settings both real and imaginary."―The Poetry Foundation

"Biespiel is a true poetic innovator."―The Portland Mercury

"Biespiel has a gift for transformation . . . he can make a command sound like an incantation. He can create psalm―like beauty from the repetition of a simple phrase . . . one must note the instances of raw brilliance."―Chelsea

"[Biespiel] writes with a belief in the redemptive powers of poetry."―Choice

"Biespiel's debut collection is sustained by a search for transcendent, intuitive truths."―Publisher's Weekly
