Compelling Clarity of Insight: John Domini on DeWitt Henry’s Safe Suicide

Date: May 7, 2009

Review by John Domini in GENTLY READ LITERATURE, December 2008It's called creative non-fiction, and these days there's just no stopping it. More and more commercial publishing depends on the memoir, ostensibly non-fiction and most, at least, remain reasonably true to the facts. Meanwhile, at universities all over the country a fledgling writer can earn multiple […]

Andrew Kozma’s review in American Book Reviews

Date: May 6, 2009

"Green is an intensely formal poet–not in tone, but in construction. Look at that table of contents again: five groups of ten. A desire for symmetry, some revelatory order. He can write a perfect sonnet, works well within couplets, finds rhyme a help rather than a hindrance, and finds non-standard forms. None of these is […]

Thomas Burke, long rave review, LITERARY REVIEW

Date: May 6, 2009

Praise for Earthquake I.D. from Thomas Burke, in THE LITERARY REVIEW (50/3, Spring 2007): "an exploration of contrasts: opulence and destitution; the loved, the loving, and the dissatisfied; intractable guilt, piety and sin; characters' faith in progress while deeply cemented in reality; all interspersed between studies of our varied, yet universal human contradictions. Earthquake I.D. […]

Library Journal Issue 5/Arts and Humanities

Date: May 2, 2009

"Everything I write requires this: Alphabet." A child sees letters first, "shape distinguishing itself from its background," but soon we lose the innocence of that first encounter to ideas of sound, sequence, and sense, some fixed order separating right from wrong. In this debut, White, a Dine' (Navajo), never gives up the innocence of the […]

Sholeh Wolpe’s Rooftops of Tehran

Date: April 22, 2009

Sholeh Wolpe's Rooftops of Tehran is that truly rare event: an important book of poetry. Brushing against the grain of Persian-Islamic culture, she sings a deep affection for what she ruffles. Her righteous aversion to male oppression is as broad as the span from Tehran to LA, as deep as a wise woman's heart. This […]

The Critic’s Pen review of Future Ship

Date: April 19, 2009

Perhaps there is no present, and existence is built of the alterable past moving into the alterable future, and then through the opaque door of death. Or perhaps there is neither past nor present, as if the person were a ship on a journey through the perpetually mutating future. Kurt Brown"'s collection of poetry, and […]
