James is writing a book on the resurgence of Catholic poetry, and this essay and mine will be in it. I disagree on one item. I think there is tremendous development from the first two books to this one.

Hi, Rick.

Thank you for reading the essay.

To answer your question posed above, I am not concerned whatsoever with the author's and/or the journal's central concern of Catholicism, per se. The review was unsolicited by me; I am grateful for it, and I believe Wilson captures the essence of spirituality I hope to convey in those books.

In any event, it bolsters all other reviews of my work, except, of course, the scathing commentary on Lines of Flight, penned by Elsa Brains in The Raintown Review in 2012.

I share the disgust and condemnation of the clergy sexual abuse (and the cover-ups and failures to act) in the Catholic Church, to which my little poem, "Chasubles", attests. There is much need for reform, but so far, nothing going, to my dismay.

The books are available HERE, HERE, and HERE.
