Praise for Because There Is No Return

“These fervid and lush poems hover between an expat life and sometimes a life close to exile––geographical as well as emotional. Therein lies the longing for, and the joy of, return. And then, too, the loss in returning. This is a powerful and unique collection . . .”

Thomas Lux
