Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With his stunning eye for detail, with his ability to manipulate voice for dramatic expressiveness, with his skill in weaving in and out of a range of styles from the subtle impressionistic to the overly dramatic, Cooley is one of our most distinctive American poets."—Prairie Schooner

"Cooley finds occasion for celebration in the minute and circumstantial events of day-to-day living . . . [his] obsession with interpreting each aspect of the ‘miraculous ordinary’ forms the most distinctive feature of his verse."—The Gettysburg Review
