Praise for Robert Morgan:

There is comfort and humor in Morgan's evocation of country people trying to survive.

— Publishers Weekly
. . .

Reminiscent of James Dickey- bearing the same naturalistic marks of clear, clean prose and often disturbing imagery... Morgan casts a stark story peopled with real, believable, and honest characters.

— The Baltimore Sun
. . .

It is such a pleasure to rest on the fertile banks of [Morgan's] imagination, engaged by a steady current of haunting images and carefully chiseled phrases, that when the final poems comes, the reader feels as if the power company dammed the Green River without putting it to a vote.
