About The Insomniac Liar of Topo:

"Dubie has already been recognized as one of the most powerful and influential American poets... his poems have always been generous and inclusive, capable of containing multiple and conflicting worlds—of memory and the present, of the artistic and the daily."
Washington Post Book World

"Dubie has a singular talent for inhabiting a persona and making convincing representations of another person's life, taking on a different view and experience of the world... It is the tenderness of his identifications that makes Dubie's work extraordinary."
—Boston Review
