Chad Campbell

"Muscled and big boned as Lowell’s poems on his ancestors, Chad Campbell’s lines hold enough feral energy to carve a small farm out of the great hardwood forest. This work is just and transcendent. A marvelous debut." – Tim Lilburn

"One of the strongest books of poetry I’ve read this year, and easily among the best debut collections I’ve read in years." – Robert Moore, The Partisan

"Imagine an image hitting the eye with rapid-fire description, as if it were projected through a television that allowed the viewer to delight in the flicker of each frame. This is the technique Campbell favors," – Jim Johnstone, Carousel
