Douglas Kearney's latest poetry collection, Patter, got an early review from blogger and The Rumpus poetry editor, Brian Spears, on his personal blog New in Des Moines.
Spears describes the poems as "much visual art as they are written" and able to "impact all your senses at once."
In the review, Spears was able to deeply relate to Kearney's poetry. He writes, "What makes this book different—more intense, from my point of view—is the subject matter. Much of the book deals with the difficulties he and his wife had in conceiving and giving birth to their children. I recognize much of what he talks about in metaphoric and disjunctive ways."
