"If I could choose only one book to give every inhabitant of post-Katrina New Orleans, it would be Garrison Keillor's remarkable and wide-ranging collection of Good Poems for Hard Times. What a lovely, consoling book, perfect reading for these days when everyone is struggling with something . . . the 185 poems in this collection do help."
—The Times-Picayune (New Orleans)

"[Keillor's] taste is excellent. . . . [H]e knows good poetry."
"Those ready to whet their appetites would do well to start with Good Poems for Hard Times."
—The Cleveland Plain Dealer
