Literary Nonfiction. "What distinguishes these essays and reviews is Charles North's generosity of spirit and an intelligence that never outsmarts its subject but is there to serve it and the reader. You finish one of North's lucid essays and you want to read the poems or look at the pictures for yourself. This is criticism by a writer unafraid of his own enthusiasms who writes as if taking part in an ongoing conversation. After this book, when you next read the poems of James Schuyler or look at the work of Richard Tuttle, Charles North will be by your side. This is a wonderful book"—William Corbett.
