About Disappeared:

"The poems that comprise this powerful collection are situated on the ley lines of history, and in the treacherous landscapes of Argentina and the heart. If Williams was correct, and it is difficult to find the news in most poems, then I can't imagine poetry more essential, more vital, than this."
—Paul Guest
