Editorial Reviews

The New York Times - Dana Jennings
Darkness Sticks to Everything, an essential survey of [Hennen's] career, is his first book to be distributed nationally. Mr. Hennen's work, until now, has been like a fine fishing hole only the locals knew about…It's hard to believe that this American master—and I don't use those words lightly—has been hidden right under our noses for decades. But despite his lack of recognition, Mr. Hennen, like any practical word-farmer, has simply gone about his calling with humility and gratitude…delivering heart-buckling lines…
Library Journal
In his introduction, Jim Harrison tellingly likens Hennen's work to that of former poet laureate Ted Kooser. Hennen writes simply and affectingly of rural life in the heartlands, where "Night doesn't fall/ It rises out of low spots." He's been publishing since 1974 but is receiving national distribution only now; many readers will appreciate this evocation of a life not as commonly portrayed in contemporary verse.—BH
