Thanks to David Marx for reviewing Split the Crow on his book review blog. He makes a case for the universality of the poems despite their particular focus on North American history, and even finds a correlation between the Removal of Choctaw from Mississippi and the Syrian refugee crisis. Thanks for giving the book thoughtful consideration David.
Paula Cary of the blog Poet Hound has kindly written and posted a review of Split the Crow. For all of you who don’t eat, sleep and breathe poetry or agonize over such things as reviews, selling a few books, and giving a reading once in a while, let me tell you, getting a review for a book of poetry seems as challenging as convincing a six-year-old to visit the dentist. No, I’m not comparing reviewers to six-year-olds, but it is tough out here in the trenches.
