Nemo, these are wonderful reviews -- of what I think is seriously one of the great poetry collections of our time. These Reveries are gaining power with time, getting even more gob-smacking.

I'm utterly thrilled that reviews like these are happening.

What everyone else said, and also what the reviews say. I'm rarely excited by a review but these were an exception. The Richard Loranger piece especially nailed it for me. Congratulations Nemo. I don't have a copy of the book yet, but I will soon.

Thanks, peeps.
I was quite taken with Richard Loranger's review as well.
Like you, Andrew, I usually find reviews kind of beside the point, so I was thrilled for these to have hit the target.

I love this book & therefore love seeing both of these articulate, appreciative reviews. Thanks for sharing, Nemo.

Since this has been sitting here up top, I can say "Thank-you, Ned," without hogging the board.

Nemo, these are thrilling reviews of a spectacular book. Well-deserved of course, but what I love is they are clearly inspired, the reviewers transported and intoxicated, which is what any poet would hope for from any reader. And it makes me feel something is right with the world after all to see this.
