(Duncan R. Jamieson, Sports Literature Association)
"[These poems] are vibrant and gritty; they draw you to vicariously feel the tired, sweat soaked body as you see the everlasting beauty of the land through which the runner (or bicyclist or hiker) moves."
"There is a journalistic objectivity to Quan Barry’s new collection of poems, Water Puppets . . . There can be no denial: the winner of the 2010 Donald Hall Prize in Poetry is a demanding, worthwhile read."
"Post- is much like a reservoir . . . Volumes of Miller’s precise and resonant language flood every space within this book, creating a world of both gritty intensity and thoughtful poise. As a collection, Post- carries significant momentum. . ."
