Anyone eager for the performance of an adult, rich and animated intelligence will be grateful for Phillip Lopate's display of personality and experience. --New York Times Book Review
Phillip Lopate may be an American ambassador of nonfiction, but he is also a youthful, taciturn, love-seeking New York poet, whose poems' plainspoken, personal, darkly humorous quietly gather strength while confronting the beautiful and ugly in city life. I admire their vitality and honesty. --Henri Cole
