New Review of ‘The Carnival of Affection’

As poets, we are always glad when a first book is reviewed. But it is especially heartening when our books are found, perhaps years after they are first published, by fresh eyes. I am very grateful to Rare Swan Press, and poet and writer Renée Sigal, for this insightful review of my collection. We must all appreciate the writers who take the time to truly read our work deeply; to find resonance in it, and to also show us in their perceptions, those insights that renew our own. Please visit the Rare Swan Press website, for more excellent writing and reviews, and to see their selection of other poets they publish. It is a ‘rare swan’ indeed to find such excellent, attentive, and caring publishers that present work of real engagement.
