« The Great B-Sides [by David Lehman] | Main | Celebrating Shirley [by Charles Coe] »

May 12, 2015


Thanks for posting this terrific review and reminding us that one of the greats is thankfully still among us. I've been following Lally's work for the last decade and find him original and vulnerable and unafraid, all at the same time. Can't wait to read this most recent collection.

thanks for the kind words Theresa and for generous review David...

oh man, i couldn't have said it better.

I've known Michael Lally was a remarkable poet from his previous works. And David Lehman has an extraordinary understanding of his poems. Well done to both of them.

I had the pleasure of hearing Michael read from SWING THEORY followed by the deep pleasure of reading it alone after the reading. I was in a Manhattan penthouse and after closing the book on the page placed the book where it belonged for the next lucky person to enjoy.

and after closing the book on the LAST page placed the book where it belonged for the next lucky person to read.
