Father, Child, Water by Gary Dop gets reviewed Poetry Magazine

Recommended and briefly reviewed by Eduardo C. Corral in Poetry Magazine. The poems in Father, Child, Water by Gary Dop are funny, wicked, and poignant. These three qualities are visible in the titles. For example: “How to Pretend You’ve Read Moby-Dick,” “To My Love Handles,” “Elegy for Thomas Kinkade, Painter of Lite,” and “Little Girl, Little Lion.” Dop’s poetic gaze is wide-ranging and piercing. The poems about his father engage with the violence embedded in American masculinity and the character-driven poems are empathic and quirky. A highly enjoyable and memorable book.
