"Graziano reminds us that young love is often flooded by self-doubt and self-loathing, that sometimes the hero and the villain are inseparable. His ability to create multidimensional characters who are not afraid to offend sets him apart from other writers. My Next Bad Decision shows how the transition from young adult to parent is anything but neat and that is what makes these poems engaging. We, as readers, can read about transgressions that we have committed but don't have the guts to share."
