Praise for Adam in the Garden

In this book, we find a poet willing to risk sentimentality without collapsing into sentiment. A seeker willing to risk blasphemy in his personal search for truth. ~ Dorianne Laux, Pulitizer finalist and author of Life on Earth  

These poems are portals to hidden rooms, fields, galaxies. ~ Danusha Laméris, author of Bonfire Opera

A subtle, skillful collection.  ~ Randall Mann, author of Deal
