About No Texting at the Dinner Table:

"With a light hand and a pulsing heart, Chris Goodrich gives us the delights, glooms, and absurdities of love, marriage, childbirth and what comes after—like the way a sleepless baby is "the most terrifying thing you've ever adored"—plus the tragicomedy of being a teacher in a ghetto school, and, in general, being human. Chris is only human, like you, dear reader, and his poems just can't stop reminding you of that."
—Alicia Ostriker

"Chris Goodrich is not satisfied to write the kind of detached, overly-clever poems that litter the literary landscape and then blow away, forgotten. These poems are homemade hallelujahs, loud cheers for the team that doesn't have a prayer, cloud-bitten dreams that you can build your house from—let them live in you, and you can live in them."
—Tom C. Hunley
