"A fine new anthology...featuring terrific poets...Williams is as good a prose writer as he is a poet. Get hold of this guy's stuff and read it." -- Entertainment Weekly
"Jerry Williams, has had some experience with romantic disappointment, as he details in his slightly painful introduction...This collection is split into three sections - 'One Foot Out the Door,' 'In the Middle of the Storm' and 'The Aftermath' - and it gathers many of the poems that have helped Williams (a poet himself, with two books to his name) through his rooms of anguish over the years. Happily, they're pretty great." - PaperCuts
"In It's Not You, It's Me: The Poetry of Breakup today's big contemporary poets make breaking up and even divorce sound painfully beautiful. You'll want to read with a box of tissues, a pint of chocolate ice cream and sappy love songs playing in the background." - Lemondrop
