About Asbestos Brocade:

"Art Stringer's poetry reveals a restive and observant mind attending always to the world around it. More than merely commenting on that world, Stringer's work commits itself to the study of what we observe every day. Not content to describe, he dares to search for meaning, as if the world in all its multifarious manifestations were a text to be deciphered. The poems are like rocky crags. With a sudden shift of weight, the cleft that was your handhold turns to a jagged edge that cuts you open."
—John Van Kirk

"Stringer is a poet of complexity and range... [he] beckons and invites us into his labyrinth. "
—Rory Brennan
