What People are saying about this

David St. John
"For thirty years Jon Anderson has written the most heartbreaking poems in American poetry, and he has always had a Master's touch."
George Starbuck
"He has the wit, grace and flamboyance that win readers. What will hold his reader, I think, is a greater reward: a benign, visionary voice, consoling in presence even when the dreams it tell are of despair."
James Tate
"Jon Anderson is a craftsman with an excellent ear and eye for subtle effects. His language is always rich; and his bizarre imagination inevitably takes the reader one step further than he anticipated."
