"Yeryomin's 'miniatures' thrill by their fierce attention to natural details and by their startling, revelatory juxtapositions. In these deft, astute English translations by J. Kates, Yeryomin's clear-eyed vision arrives intactluminous, precise, and bracing."Cyrus Cassells
"Yeryomin, whose name the Russians often mention next to Brodsky, has written the body of work that is inimitable in its scope and range; whose musical and metaphorical textures amaze one not just by what they say, but also what they withhold."Ilya Kaminsky
