An integrated collection of 66 exquisitely shaped and controlled poems, each of these exhibits and conveys all signs of a fully developed poetic sensibility providing a window on the world the poem's speaker inhabits, one which necessarily dovetails with the world most human beings negotiate. This is not a juvenile talent publicly learning the poetic ropes at the readers' expense. Instead, the sophistication of arrangement, thought, and metaphor bespeaks a uniquley gifted point of view.... The Globe and Mail [Toronto]
