A Single Hurt Color takes us on winding, asymmetrical paths of loss, love, and grace. Demcak knows when language must be talky and when it must be tight, and, as a result, these poems unfold in an expansive "pageant of tongues." He revels in sound, in rhythm, in all that makes the world simultaneously wobbly and secure. -Tony Trigilio
Andrew Demcak's new book, A Single Hurt Color, reminds me of the broken snow globe at the beginning of "Citizen Kane." Demcak renders a view of the world through the filter of a shard with a piercing command of language, and an ear keenly tuned to the music of each word. -J.P. Dancing Bear, editor, The American Poetry Journal
Demcak weaves pop culture references into poems like Trinidad and Duhamel. He has a talent for writing lines that will be remembered long after you place A Single Hurt Color on the shelf. It is a given that Demcak will be remembered; he's a rising star in American Poetry. - Dustin Brookshire
