I'm moved by this review of Charlotte Songs, my latest collection from Marsh Hawk Press, in the Portraits in Poetry section of the American Book Review. Hasanthika Sirisena's piece, Masked, caught what could so easily be missed by a less insightful reader.
“I’ll admit that when I first picked up Paul Pines’s latest poetry collection I didn’t truly appreciate its subversiveness... It was only when I realized how rare such tributes are that I began to understand the true importance of these spare, elegant poems.”
— Hasanthika Sirisena, American Book Review
My gratitude for this.
