"David Hecker's Dream World is a magic carpet ride with poets and artists. Through illuminating landscapes, enjoy Whirling Dervishes dancing to drums and string instruments, along with his tribute to Pablo Neruda's La Chascona, 'The sections of his home were like the stanzas of a poem.' Of Denise Levertov, he writes 'We both laughed when I told her I was a "retired" catholic, a faith she had just joined.'"
"David Hecker's Dream World transports readers to landscapes both far away and close to home, across the borders of territory, time, and the heart. Images illuminate and reflect the poet's experiences and those of the characters who inhabit these poems, leaving us homesick for places we may have never been."
