Here is what some folks have had to say about the book:
“The Ship Is Sinking is a stellar example of why Epic Rites Press exists. Here is poetry as it was meant to be experienced. No bullshit. No pretense. Just blood, guts, and bone.”
— Wolfgang Carstens, Factory Reject
“The Ship is Sinking is a lovely book, complete with sincerity, continuity, and fun.”
— R L Raymond, Half Myths and Quarter Legends
“Read it through in one sitting. All new poems to me. Not a bad one in the bunch. Not even a tiny misstep. Sure-footed all the way. And every poem is pared to perfection. And I ain’t sayin’ that just for alliteration purposes. It’s true.”
— Paul Agostino, Headlock Press (full review here)
“The Ship is Sinking is a highly readable first collection which scoots the thin rim between joy and a looming darkness […] an impressive complexity of tone and mood. These poems will take you by surprise.”
— George Anderson, Bold Monkey (full review here)
Reviews are showing up on LibraryThing and Goodreads as well.
