There are poems in this collection which I simply fell in love with. I read them once, and then again, and then again--and I'll come back to them in the future. Arnold has balanced everyday America against humor, suffering, and observations in a style that comes across as effortless, balancing image against language to make nearly every poem here worth reading and hearing more than once.

I've been a fan of this press for a while, so the look of Arnold's book combined with that familiarity drew me in pretty quickly, and I'm so glad it did. This is the kind of poetry which is deceptively simple, and which will offer readers as much as they wish to get from it, accessible and intelligent as it is.

Simply, I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys poetry or wants to jump in. I'll be looking for more of the author's work. ( )
