"Day navigates the tensions between breadth and precision, and between the historical and the personal, in his excellent debut collection. Through a range of forms, he creates a liminal space wherein references to strange historical anecdotes share a stage with more introspective and personal utterances. Through this balancing act, what seems remote becomes highly accessible and mysteriously familiar…In the process of weaving his materials together, he draws his readers into a sort of collective memory, thus fostering a sense of community…Day masterfully conjoins the still life with the moving landscape, the expansive with the infinitesimal…This act of cracking and reassembling is a constant struggle, but there’s merit in the struggle itself."
