Your Crib, My Qibla

Review in the Kenyon Review:

“I have not encountered a poet more attuned to the movement of emotion through the body or whose poems move so surprisingly. This collection is especially suited to a reader who finds herself too overwhelmed or detached to be an ‘I’ or choose a direction. Your Crib, My Qibla is perfect for someone who needs to be held in the body until the ‘mind feels like a mind.'”

Get Thee to a Bakery

Review in the Midwest Book Review:

“Whether you love to people watch, enjoy virtual travelling, enjoy a spot or humour, or are simply looking for a great read, this is the book for you! Highly recommended.”

Tony Lazzeri

Review in Baseball History Comes Alive:

“In Tony Lazzeri: Yankees Legend and Baseball Pioneer, Lawrence Baldassaro has written the book that was long overdue. It’s remarkably well researched and detailed, and holds the reader’s interest from start to finish. In my opinion, it will soon be recognized as the definitive biography of this great Hall-of-Famer ballplayer, Tony Lazzeri. It’s one I highly recommend to all baseball fans.”

Sacrament of Bodies

Review in Open Country Magazine:

“It is inevitable that Sacrament of Bodies will become an influential work in contemporary poetry from Africa, especially with its centering of queer people. In Oriogun’s journey, it feels like a book he needed to write. Where a weaker hand might falter under the sensitivity of such a subject, his is assured—skills he has been traversing beautifully into prose nonfiction.”

The Pride of Minnesota

Review in Twins Daily:

“In The Pride of Minnesota, Thom Henninger brings fans back to a by-gone era that has many connections to present day. For fans, like me, that are too young to remember, this book paints a picture of what this important era meant to the Twins and to the country as a whole. Others who lived through the era will enjoy reminiscing about the pennant races and players that helped them to fall in love with baseball.”
