“The work in the collection is very strong. By proposing such a broad theme for this collection, Currier allows individual poets to pursue the subject matter in a way that is most meaningful for each of them. This leads to a great deal of variety of both content and style providing something for everyone.”

—Mack Freeman, ALA GLBT Reviews

“The breadth of this collection is astonishing…With some entries heartfelt, some humorous, some hopeful, and some heartily homespun, this overview works best as a sampler of new poets as well as those who have been around a while. Dig in, and maybe you’ll discover a chapbook or two to order.”

Jerry Wheeler, Out in Print

“Currier's assemblage spotlights works from both better-known writers in our talented community and newcomers, with equal emphasis. With short author profiles preceding each poem, these pages delight with musings, reflections, opinions, and memories of gay men with their fathers, their ‘square-jawed, shaved-headed’ gym crushes, doctors, first-time dinner guests who confess to having ‘only three dates in five years,’ old lovers, new bed partners, and even a carpenter who steals then breaks the author's faithless heart.”

—Jim Piechota, Bay Area Reporter
