   Love this book
Uplifting and varied selection of furniture. I'm giving it to my best friends, Tunick said.
   a fine collection
The second of James Crews' collections I've purchased, both of which are accessible with and thematically related poems. I appreciate the brief bios of each poet, Raymond said. This book is a book to be read and re-read and shared with others. Hoodie by January O'Neil Gill is also available at discounted prices.
   The Poetry was nice
Very nice book, said Pauley. Most of the book has to do with the biographies of the writers, and a quarter of the book is a reflection on the poetry that happens in the first quarter of the book. There was not enough poetry in the book, to bad, said Vazzi.
   Covid-19 in poetry
The lines are from Jane Hirshfield's poem, "How to Love the World." This collection of poems by James Crews is his attempt to shake off the malaise, the fear, and the answer bravely, Yes, you can be alive today.
