Editorial Reviews

What a terrific book this is! . . . [Blumenthal] thinks out loud for all of us, affirms and denies with wit, charm, and best of all, with what feels like hard-won accuracy.'-Stephen Dunn'Michael Blumenthal's poetry never sits heavy on the reader yet is substantial, civilized, and capable of articulating the human condition, including its pains and losses, without melodrama, high sentence, or self-pity.No Hurry is a gorgeous book: the world of flesh, mind, and heart spoken through air and silk.' -George Szirtes'Blumenthal goes straight to the heart in these poems. Gorgeously wrought, surprising, true, wise, elegiac, they leave me with a sense of having listened to Mozart'sAve Verum Corpus. Who could ask for more?' -Lynn Freed
