How We All Swiftly: The First Six Books

Don Coles

"No poet captures the quicksilver twists and turns of our tongues and thoughts more exactly and more memorably than Coles; few can be as exacting or demanding in what they commit to print. Most of all it is Coles's mastery of syntax, sinuous and unpredictable, that places his poetry among the very best being written in English." -Globe and Mail

"The verbal stretch that gives Coles's poetry its adventuring thrill is world class ... he has outgrown us and deserves an international readership." -Montreal Gazette
