Editorial Reviews

Review

"The surface ease and playfulness of these poems belie their seriousness." -- Chase Twichell

A shimmering constellation of images, both urban and wild, filled with unexpected twists and shifts. -- Time Out New York

Everywhere marked by originality and freshness.... wakes one up and clears the senses. -- Harvard Review

The surface ease and playfulness of these poems belie their seriousness... They're smart, inventive, and sneakily profound. -- Chase Twichell

About the Author

Matthew Rohrer was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and grew up in Oklahoma. He attended the Iowa Writers' Workshop, University College Dublin, and the University of Michigan, where he won the Avery Hopwood Award for poetry. His first book, A Hummock in the Malookas, was a winner of the National Poetry Series and chosen as a Publishers Weekly Best Book of 1995. Mary Oliver called his work "beautiful and disquieting," and Harvard Review notes that his poems are "everywhere marked by freshness and originality." He has appeared on NPR's All Things Considered - The Book Show, and is a poetry editor of Fence.

Format: Paperback
I went to school with both Clover and Rohrer, and I'm not close with either. I can, however, attest to the fact that both poets have very different styles and neither has influenced the other. Satellite is singular in its vision, and grows clearly from the strengths of Rohrer's first book. It is a compelling book that takes considerably more effort to read than A Hummock. Ms. Fuller would do herself a favor if she took the time to read past "surfaces" and offer more than just a knee jerk reaction.
