About A House That Falls:

"The clarity and precision o f a nearly volumeless speech mark the brilliant stanzas of this chapbook that records the mysteries and the terrible binding that come with Alzheimer's- Nevin is such a stunning and courageous writer."
—Norman Dubie

"There's something radiantly deep in the poems o f Sean Nevin. Something luminous and haunting, familiar yet magnetically charged, potently mysterious .... Nevin's poems lead us to the powerful contemplative edge of thinking and seeing that we need. I trust him."
