About Model Disciple:

"The strengths of the collection reside in movement, and Prior's ability to generate one image and end up somewhere surprising."
—Micheline Maylor

"In many ways—the range of interests, quality of language, the attention to rhythm—Prior's work is a kind of blend of P. K. Page and Karen Solie, but I make those comparisons only to say that his work is already polished and self-assured."
—Jay Ruzesky
