Learning to Talk Again is a stunning debut volume of poetry, a cornucopia of extraordinary verse sprinkled with some fine prose poetry. Doss has a unique voice and a powerful sense of place that make for fresh and deeply moving poems (see, especially, Deer, Anastasia,and Desmond T.). Clearly, history is a living,breathing, sometimes bleeding, reality for the poet; far more than mere nostalgia. These poems are insightful, even brutally honest, yet compassionate. There are several affectionate portraits well worth reading more than once. I recommend this book highly; you will be moved by it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
