Editorial Reviews


"For me, this book's diary page descriptions in artfully disruptive blank verse make most sense when considered in light of their relation to the author's live coterie and stage credits of promise, and to my own fractious personal memories of self-absorbed distress signaling - almost not making it out, and out of my own puzzling equivocal twenties.

--J. Stephen Hunt, Chicago

You are blessed to hold in your hands Robert Eric Shoemaker's vivid and charming first book of poems, composed as a "doctored prescription": to refrain from boozy spirits, and to instead partake deeply of art making, the impetus for this lucky trade being a genuine display of paternal concern and love delivered in an American chain restaurant... In the realm of Shoemaker's multi-tonal, plural "instants," the "greens grow like spread seed," and the poet finds the way beneath the various shades and arcs of one's life, the buoyant rainbow in continual and generous burn and shatter to light up the city." 

--Jessica Savitz, author of Hunting is Painting

"As amulet against the parched interior, 30 Days Dry wards off temptation with strongly worded texts and letters to a "mirror-me" we all recognize in one another. Round and round we go, cheering for a speaker who can spell out rightful histories in a luxurious aftermath of new grass growing. "
--Catherine Theis, author of The Fraud of Good Sleep
"Like any self-help book addict waiting for the guru to publish the next volume, 30 Days Dry will make you thirst for more." 

-Jeri Frederickson, Literary Manager at Irish Theatre of Chicago & Freelance Writer

"Shoemaker squeezes the juice out of his thirty days."
-Troy Cabida, Author of Lost in London
"I'd read more self-help books if they represented honest, complicated journeys like this one... Robert Eric Shoemaker might be an undercover prophet." 

-Melissa Kiefer, Writer and Educator
