About The Last Real Medicine Show:

In his wonderful debut collection, Michael Graber has encompassed the rich musical, emotional, and physical life of his region. From Bluegrass, to Country, to the Delta Blues, often using music as his metaphors for poetry, Graber weaves a vision both personal and universal. The poems sing to you and give you that deep sadness of a blues song where loneliness and loss turn into love and redemption."
—John Bensko

"Michael Graber writes to the beat of a different drummer—or should I say, a different strummer not to the tune of Petrarchan lutes, but the twang of banjos, the sob of steel guitars. Like an old-timey fiddle, Graber's music has a snake's rattle in its belly."
—A.E. Stallings
