Praise for Scofield's Previous Work

Praise for Gregory Scofield's previous work:

This is courageous writing . . . [Scofield’s] directness and ease are like a gift of speech, a contagious freedom. Balancing anger and forgiveness, he applies his tender or sardonic touch to weighty subjects—poverty, racism, sexual abuse, street life—without diminishing their seriousness.
Vancouver Sun

These poems bring the gift of light and affirmation with a lyrical intensity that astonishes.
—Patrick Lane

These songs are so beautiful they are dangerous.
—Joy Harjo
