KIRKUS REVIEW

Modern, mordanst, occasionally macbre lyrics from a young poet. The impetus is varied, from the transient to the permanent, from a haircut, a train trip, to exile and death. Strong imagery, rather Freudian, for an interesting collection. The author is present with the armed forces in the Pacific, many of these lyrics were written from there.
