Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
""Laurence Donovan's Dog Island' is one of the finest poems about Florida ever written, the product of deep lyric impulse, a metaphysician's wit and irony, and a superb craftsman's care. These qualities are equally apparent in the suite of Donovan etchings that accompany it. They make this small but mighty book a treasure."
