"Alan Walowitz’s poetry can provoke out-loud laughter and pensive melancholy; better still, he can even do both in the same poem. He has a particular talent for reconstructing recollections, quietly showing us what is moving about them and why, as in this volume’s splendid title poem."
~ Robert Wexelblatt, author of 'The Posthumous Papers of Sidney Fein'
"What I love about Alan Walowitz’s poems, is the very relatable way in which he captures so many of life’s important moments with astute observation, wry humor, and empathy. He has a distinctive voice which infiltrates my synapses and resonates with my heart."
~ Betsy Mars, author of 'Alinea'
"Alan Walowitz is neither withholding nor unnecessarily oblique. And then there’s the welcome wit, as he juggles the sometimes Jewish-blues in deft narratives that never cease to surprise. In his refusal to claim wisdom, he is wise. And oh, so rare to turn a breath into a gasp."
~ Estha Weiner, author of 'at the last minute'
