"Rybicki has a hurricane-heart, a hammer-heart, ...just waiting to be unleashed upon this perhaps-undeserving world." -- Rick Bass
"Rybicki ignites the page. ...I have copied out lines from his poems and kept them on my desk for years." -- Amy Hempel
"Rybicki's [a] poet whose individual poems seem like autobiographical fragments still hurtling apart from some personal Big Bang." -- Stuart Dybek
From the Publisher
Perhaps the most intriguing book of poems to come out of Detroit since Phillip Levine and Jim Daniels. Hard-nosed city poems matched with lyrical country poems. Poems of work, love, family, struggle against illness. Funny, tender, full of poignant longing.
