About Blind Rain:

"Bruce Bond is one of our generation's best poets."
—Laura Kasischke

"A moving tribute to the power of music and the sensual life of the mind."
—Dorianne Laux

"No poet writes about music better than Bruce Bond, and there are not many who can, poem after poem, combine such lucidity with such lyrical intensity. Blind Rain is a triumph of a book, a realized pursuit of language that frames and limns the deeply felt and the elusive."
—Stephen Dunn
