About Good Friday Kiss:

"There is something about these poems that is so immediate, so unflinching, so focused and visceral in their understatement, that I was, on first reading, astonished. On second reading I was astonished and deeply moved. On third reading I was astonished, deeply moved, and filled with joy!"
—Thomas Lux

"In Good Friday Kiss, I find everything I want in a poetry book. Precise language. Daring poems. Unexpected wisdom. An ambitious range of voice and emotion. A sense of anguish and salvation. This is a first book to admire and a poet to watch"
—Virgil Suarez
