"You can hear the country and the blues in these poems, with lyrics leaning toward ballad and popular song style form. The painter's life, aging, mortality--this is the veteran poet James' territory of the heart, with more than a few lines that remind you of Leonard Cohen." ~ Trevor Carolan, M.A; Ph.D; poet; novelist; film producer and Editor - Pacific Rim Review of Books
