Praise for Satisfying Clicking Sound

"Poet and critic Jason Guriel solidifies his place in CanLit with substantial contributions to both fields. . . Most of Guriel's poems open outward, including insight, mischief and wordplay." –Quill & Quire

Previous praise for Jason Guriel:

"What no one wants to admit is that most of the so-called avant-garde poets can't write, and most of the so-called lyric poets can't think. Guriel strikes a bold middle ground; he consistently strives to overlay serious lyricism with serious aesthetic commentary, and he does so with grace, effortlessness, and humour." —Maisonneuve

"[Pure Product] may well be that rare thing: a collection to be lived with." —The Globe and Mail

"These poems, often about disposable parts of our culture, are frenetically alive. They infuse the products they exemplify with a life, a valency, an irrepressible energy." —Arc Poetry Magazine
