Dixmont is more than a blip on the Doppler screen of American poetry; it measures the weather of our times. Against a background of wars past and present, Rick Campbell wages his own personal battles on several fronts.... --Robert Dana
Rick Campbell's new poems are blocks and chunks of daily life, scooped raw from the dirt we're all made of, and made art by the magic of his wit. They are full of courage and grace, and yes, wonderful humor, too, as they take on the ugliness and beauty and mystery of our mortality.... --Judith Kitchen
