Overview

"I found it nearly impossible to characterize Sometimes in Balance. Like a complex wine, whose blend of many fleeting perfumes and tastes leaves an unforgettable experience, I found in these poems glimpses of a poetic kinship with Edgar A. Robinson, with Auden, with Anthony Hecht, with Poe. And the list could go on. Alan Reynolds' work is the closest approach to poetic shape-shifting as I have encountered. Introspect, humor, prophecy, surgically-precise exposition of motives and manners - all combine here in a delightful, enduring and scintillating presentation. The book may be read at any starting point, or methodically from front to back. But whatever you do, read it and enjoy." Jerry H. Jenkins.
