ACCLAIM / COMMENTS FOR THE AUTHOR:
NEVER A BIRD CRY SORROW (POEM):
"Sigmund Freud would have given anything if poets in his era had clarified the nature of man through poetry. But he couldn't, so it was left to Justin to take psychoanalysis to the next level."
- Jim Bell, Editor; Bells Letters Poets, 2013 (Issue 142).
"I would answer NO! We have had plenty of chances to avoid Armageddon, Hades, and the Lake of Fire and Brimstone. Yet they still threaten us."
"Justin's deep probe of the bird world leaves me agog; such beautiful logic, and here all my life, I've been dreaming I had wings."
- Jim Bell, Editor; Bells Letters Poets, 2013-2014 (Issue 143 and 144)
"It is great to see Graham developing as a writer."
- Dan Haldeman, President, Book Hub Inc, 2013.
