-Roberta Beary, author of the Unworn Necklace and editor at Modern Haiku
"Kolodji writes about the ordinary, as any good haiku poet should, but the difference here is the wide spectrum that she covers which simply captivates us all.... One of the best haiku books out there. It's worth its weight in ink!"
-Stanford M. Forrester, editor of bottle rockets and past president of the Haiku Society of America
"highway of sleeping towns creates a constellation of stellar images. Kolodji is one of the best haiku poets in America today; she is relentless in her search for self-truth..."
-Terry Ann Carter, President, Haiku Canada
"Kolodji's observations are deep and prismatic, allowing us entry into her universe of analytic piquancy, wit, and pathos...offering the reader not only pause but continual playback. Whoever you are, these poems will move you to bear witness to the power of this diminutive form to shape meaning from moment and the ways in which a masterful poet makes any moment profound."
-Lois P. Jones, Poetry Editor, Kyoto Journal
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Deborah P. Kolodji's collection of haiku/senryu, highway of sleeping towns, is superb. As anyone who has tried to write them knows, the form is simple yet difficult to master; this book shows mastery. And not only that: she is the rare writer regardless of genre who handles humor and pathos equally well. A must-have for anyone who is a fan of good (or better-than-good) writing.
