“These stunning poems are profound meditations, urgent and authentic. They contain the minutest of details on big subjects whose weight marks Gonzalez’s graceful and radiant lines. This kind of poetry is tender, haunting, and transformative.” —Denise Duhamel, author of Ka-Ching!
“Few poets can sing as far and deep as Ray Gonzalez. His odes and meditations are in conversation with a wide range of poets (the likes of Elizabeth Bishop, Li-Young Lee, and Allen Ginsberg) and with the men and women of his life. Here, as in his previous books, he has written a boundless, generous poetry that speaks to and for all of us.” —Terrance Hayes, author of Wind in a Box
“In his moving poem ‘Not Today,’ Ray Gonzalez writes: ‘When the artifacts of memory / disintegrated into nothing, / you were simply the signature in / fading ink.’ Gonzalez’s true signature is found in his poems that live on in the ‘territories in the mind.’ Faith Run is an extraordinary book of poems.” —Juan Delgado, author of A Rush of Hands
