About Ordinary Mornings of a Coliseum:

"The voices of Dubie's monologues are full of astonishing intimacy."
The Washington Post Book World

"Norman Dubie is one of our premier poets. The reader new to Mr. Dubie's work is likely to be struck first by the vigor of his forms and the bravery of his language."
The New York Times
