From the Publisher
"These is accomplished art concealed in Mr. Casey's seemingly off-hand sketches."—Daniel Hoffman, The New York Times

"The man has that rare sense of language alive, each word as important to test against each other before letting it stay as every other word you keep."—Nat Hentoff, The Village Voice

"Readers in search of authentic gut poetry need search no further."—Publishers Weekly
