About The Manageable Cold:

"The Manageable Cold doesn’t read like a first book—the poems are so carefully tuned, well-conceived, bittersweet, often funny, yet always lyric in their rich, varied, elegiac rememberings."
—John Balaban

"The Manageable Cold introduces a fine new talent. McBride is a gifted formalist who can chronicle street toughs and altar boys with equal lyrical honesty. He is at home with the sonnet—even one about weight lifting titled ‘Squats’—and with the brilliant free verse of ‘on Hearing that Music Enhances Brain Development.’ Here are love poems and love lost poems; dark humor beneath real sorrow; intelligence and tough talk that sings. Timothy McBride is good news indeed."
—Betty Adcock
