About The Narrow Circle:

"Contemplative enough to evoke ‘the sound of your head’ and strangely perceptive enough to assert that sound is like ‘a car starting in the rain,’ these poems are marvelously resourceful while being elegantly composed. With Chaplinesque pathos, Nathan Hoks fills The Narrow Circle with imaginative verve."
—Dean Young
