'Squandermania is a book of associative delight, even when the poems are at their most grave. They combine the obliquity of Mina Loy, the incantatory freshness of Roethke, and even Plath's devotion to nursery rhyme to leaven the book's prevailing tones of irony, sorrow, and regret. The poet's awareness of how daily life refuses to cohere into a consoling pattern is beautifully mirrored by his conviction that language itself signals a fall from grace and unity and emotional wholeness. And yet the poet keeps faith with language by allowing language to drive the poems, even as the poet's occasions and subject matter are grounded in what Hopkins called 'the in-earnestness of speech.' - Tom Sleigh
