My review of Will Crawford’s Fire in the Marrow

My review of Will Crawford’s Fire in the Marrow, published in the El Paso Times in February of 2012.

“. . . Crawford’s poems describe the brutalities of life in original, graphic and recognizable detail, yet do so with beauty and elegance. Short of transformation of the clumsy and casual brutality of the human condition, our only redemption, Crawford seems to be telling us, is to be found in art.

For that, I recommend “Fire in the Marrow” to anyone who does not shrink from confronting life’s bitter pill, yet yearns for the “sustained gracenote” of redemptive loveliness found in Crawford’s poetry.”
