Praise

“Reibetanz’s imagination has raided his abilities (an ear for music, a sure command of description) to produce poems that are uncanny in their ability to ‘read’ the world.…He is a poet capable of enormous poignancy.”
–Montreal Gazette

“Exceptional.… Whatever the theme taken on, the author’s poetic craft operates in full discovery mode, ever vital and fresh.”
The Fiddlehead

Author Essay

These are poems that should appeal both to readers who value poetry and to those who are usually more attracted to fiction. Most of the pieces are poem-stories, short narratives that use poetry to focus on important moments in the lives of fictional characters. While my first collection (Ashbourn) tried to bring some of the methods and features of drama into poetry, this one raids contemporary short fiction and cinema for its art.
-John Reibetanz
