” With wit and passion, skill and fellow feeling, the fragmentations of the past are made whole through a re-imaging as poetry. In between the dancing is the premier of a new poet, a first book that is as premier as it is memorable.”

– Paul Kane –

“Gleeson’s natural-voice poetry works into the corners of experience, both personal and imagined – a humane and contemplative first collection.”

– Aileen Kelly –

” E. A. Gleeson has that rare talent of lifting a moment of intimacy into the realm of universal truth, of capturing instances of recollection and infusing them with emotion and thoughtful language where every word gleams.”
