"Amherst Massachusetts" About You Look Nice Strange Man:

"In these poems, the personal mingles fluently with the historic, the mundane with the canonized. Myth meets household hint. Violence and sadness argue themselves in and out of luck. Generations remake each other in intensities... The poems of You Look Nice Strange Man are a lucky chance to listen in on the long conversation between what is, what was, what is to come."
—Angela Ball

"Whatever we hope it means to be known, however we find ways to try to know, what Kuperman's poems are doing is saying that always love is involved. These are beautiful poems realized with spirit and serious attention to human ways."
—Dara Wier

"Jaimee Kuperman's poems, both wise and playful, are a pleasure to read. You Look Nice Strange Man is evocative, inventive and surprising."
—Tova Mirvis
