My Problem with the Truth      Chris Anderson

Chris Anderson's My Problem with the Truth is a book of largess and celebration. Its poems rise out of a quality of attention—to feeling, thought, and, above all, language—that both prompts and invites similar focus, similar absorption, from readers.”

Solar Prominence      Kevin Craft

“The intelligence, the imagination, the quick humor in Solar Prominence all point in the same direction: toward the poem as a made thing, a thing of light, crafted, the way craft, through its various art, transforms the generalities into the specifics of magic.”

Insects of South Corvallis      Charles Goodrich

“Spiders, sow bugs, aphids, house flies, cabbage moths, stinging nettles—not to mention beans, peach pits, and the pockets of warm air lingering under willows—Goodrich's concern for all of nature, including us, is extraordinary, and absolutely genuine.”

China Basin      Clemens Starck

“I have been crazy about Clem Starck's poetry ever since I read it a few years ago while picking him as the winner of the Oregon Book Award. I'm not alone in particularly cherishing poems by people who work with their hands. Carpenters, printers and factory workers are a fresh and vital antidote to the myriad of academic poets. Cheers for Clem!”
