Poetry. "These short poems are an extraordinary amalgam of wit, close observation, humor and clear-seeing. Each one singles out and illuminates an ordinary moment—ordinary, that is, until the poet explodes into a miniature epiphany. Easy of access and frequently profound, J.R. Solonche's poems induce in me a state of delighted surprise."—Chase Twichell
