“ "The poetry of the ages is an argument with God, so it is said; but not many poets attempt it today. Stanley Moss does. In many voices, in lines rugged yet eloquent, in different places and with various leanings, he sings us songs of his unbelievable belief, his unlovable lovesongs of anguish, songs any of us would sing if we could. I find them disconcerting and extraordinarily moving." ”

“Magisterial … this book is magnificent. I've read it several times with greater and greater pleasure. Its verbal generosity and bravura, its humanity, the quality and quantity of information which it integrates into poetry of the highest order make it a continuing delight.”

“This is a book made of experience and high intellect. From the first measured trope to the last haunting moment, in which God equals a question, these poems curse and sing about the blessings and tragedies of personal life. Embracing the larger world, they're also hardy psalms that make me say, Thanks for this important, gutsy collection.”
