Praise for Robert Morgan:

"Reads like a fireside chat, a storyteller's story, frozen in time on the printed page."

— Southern Living
. . .

Morgan writes "with an authority usually associated with the great novelist of the last century."

— The Boston Book Review
. . .

Morgan has contributed so much to the health of southern poetry over the last thirty-five years that the southerness of his work is axiomatic... [His] reputation is made, in no small part, on the strength of his ear, with which he has produced some of the most sonorous poems in the language.

— North Carolina Literary Review
