"Adam Day’s debut volume of poetry bucks the current pandemic of terminal irony, but does so with alertness to paradox and mystery–those things irony becomes when it grows up. In varied formal moves and unified tone, Day reminds us how rewarding serious poetry can be and how much we have missed it." "As Day’s poems gather, taking stock, making inventory, he reveals the fundamental paradox of his method: familiarity crossed with estranging clarity produces, in the hands of this fine new poet, an eerie intensity and a distinguishing grace."
