"The world in these poems, rendered from memory on a mythic tide, is at once palpable and numinous." —On the Seawall

“Tightly conceived, elegantly architectured, and sophisticatedly enunciated. . . . [The Iron Key] oozes nostalgia for the many charms of Venice, the complexities of Greek myths, and the ethereal pleasures of opera and poetry that is, paradoxically, both old-fashioned and refreshing.”—The Rumpus
