About Sun & Urn:

"If a poet ends a poem early in a book with, 'And always a hellhound be,' I keep reading. If, several poems later, a speaker is burning his deceased father's toupee in the yard, I keep reading—harder, closer. Christopher Salerno's Sun & Urn is a highly accomplished (he has learned his trade!), a madly imaginative, and, ultimately, a brilliant and deeply human book. Read it, please, thrice!"
—Thomas Lux
