Praise

Praise for Phillip B. Williams:

“[Williams] invites his audience into an intimacy that is brutal and yet inestimably generous in its confession and compassion . . . [He is] a voice for whom language is inadequate, yet necessarily grasped, shaped, and consumed. His devout and excruciating attention to the line and its indispensable music fuses his implacable understanding of words with their own shadows.”
Boston Review

“[Williams] sings for the vanished, for the haunted, for the tortured, for the lost, for the place on the horizon where the little boat of the human body disappears in a wingdom of unending grace.”
The Best American Poetry

“Rage and pure passion jump off the page. Formal structure is . . . used with both skilland force, creating evocative images that writhe with their own simultaneous beauty and strength.”
The Adroit Journal

“This gorgeous debut is a ‘debut’ in chronology only, a rare poetic event that transcends our expectations. Williams’s poems embody balance: uncompromising and magnetic, surprising and intuitive. Need is everywhere—in the unforgiving images, in lines so delicatethey seem to break apart in the hands, and in the reader who will enter these poems and never want to leave.”
Adrian Matejka, author of The Big Smoke, on Thief in the Interior
