Reviews

"A poet of great gifts, a humorous visionary" -- Laura Cumming * Guardian * "Like his admired Theodore Roethke, Lynch hails from Michigan - and like Roethke he can fashion long, singing lines unafraid of the old elemental resonances of stars, roses, angels, the Latin mysteries of his Catholic childhood... A mavellous, life-giving collection" -- Adam Thorpe * Observer * "A fine and accomplished poet" -- Harry Ritchie * Financial Times * "An artist of great gifts, musically elevating and directing the speaking voice towards a startling power, moving through the accumulation of detail to give a visionary account of the ordinary life, doing justice to its terror and comedy. If it remains the poet's task to say things on behalf of everybody, Lynch shows how it should be done" -- Sean O'Brien "Tragic, cryptic, compassionate and amusing, Lynch's poetry moves in a superb rhythm through the commonplace and the extraordinary" -- Jessamy Galkin * GQ *
