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
