Editorial Reviews


Life of the Bones to Come seems to implicate us all, or so many. Stories abound, the central character of each poem shifting so often that suggestions of tales emerge, especially about bodies having or just finished having sex, with varying afterthoughts. Even the specifics of the one or two locations, the bay or the lake — an old woman recently dead or the self distilled to fingerlings, to tension in a butterfly wing — are portraits of us, these bones our future when “the ‘I’ begins to be the unnecessary.” — Michael Daley

"In exquisite language which stands a little aside from itself, aware of what it can and cannot do, these poems are payers of beauty and pain. This is art, they say. You aren’t supposed to believe it as life except for the pure truth of the feelings it evokes in you. Yet they cut deep . . . “What is real?” they ask. “Whatever hurts.” Larry Laurence’s poems make us see the miracle of nature, love, eros and history new again." — Judith Roche
