Press Reviews

"'It's scandal's defining of boundaries that interests me,' the narrator says. Bue what are our boundaries? Glück invites us, his readers, to join him in an interrogation that takes in just about every aspect of life. Over and over, images, phrases, even stories within stories, are held up to reveal deeper reverberations and connections. This, rather than traditional plot development, drives each story forward... Robert Glück is one of the most daring, innovative and relevant new writers amongst us." - The Advocate


"Robert Glück is already one of those writers who change and enlarge the task and acheivement of writing itself– his conviction throughout that the world, the poem, the narrative be direct and clear, and the independence of his mind and spirit herald the emergence of a new classicism." -Robert Duncan
