Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Jim Daniels gives voice to the voiceless. . . . He makes articulate the feelings of inarticulate people.”
New York Times Book Review

"Idealistic and original, this poetry turns the self inside out, like a glove, and refits it to the world's hand. Personal becomes Universal. Casual diction, non-metrical and intellectual unconventionality, and patient introspection þ the careful combing of the past þ draw us inevitably closer to the ever-present but elusive mystery of 'the possible world.'"
Michigan Quarterly Review
