    metaphorical turn

    Daniels is best known for his exquisite and powerful blue collar narratives. But here he shows he can handle intricate metaphorical structures and word-play with the best of them. There is an odd surrealism here, a sense of language as material, almost as if the poet is listening and capturing the language as it unfolds out of him. Poems disturbing and ecstatic. Very impressive, to say the least.

    Could become a favorite poet

    this is the first book by Jim Daniels I've read. His style is unique in that he has a way of invoking memories, feelngs and images from my unconscious, or perhaps my past, and I find that very enjoyable.
