About Kingdom Come:

"John Estes’ poems—precise, quizzical, erudite, playful—remind us of the revelatory work wit can do when matched to a sensuous mind."
—Michele Glazer

"These are the poems of the perplexed. More specifically, they are the poems of the perplexed but good-humored, the perplexed but well-disposed—an all but forgotten species of intellectual whose lineage includes Chesterton, Orwell, and Lippmann. They are, moreover, poems that treat domestic life—life in common—with due respect, and with intermittent awe."
—Scott Cairns
