What People Are Saying

Yusef Komunyakaa
"Plain-spoken and magical, this poet knows how to make imagination and the real world collide softly-a mantra of what is and what is dreamt-that takes into the sacred territory what no ordinary compass can plot or unplot."

"Plain-spoken and magical, this poet knows how to make imagination and the real world collide softly–a mantra of what is and what is dreamt–that takes into the sacred territory what no ordinary compass can plot or unplot."
Ruth Stone
"Tony Barnstone has no walls. He is alive moment to moment at the naked center. In his shrewd double vision, the animal self and the outside self mingle in ecstasy and grief of flesh. He is so surprising and fearless and cuts right to it, and yet so delicate and lyrical. The pure Impure! Bravo!"
