About Pyromythology:

"Gorgeous poems like lethal garments stitched together with scorching needles and very hot wire."
—Rikki Ducornet

"In Pyromythology incendiary memory moves forward as Vision, as a forecast of fires to come. These are the best poems yet—all edged with the white heat of white space—from an utterly original American poet."
—Donald Revell
