QUOTES OF NOTEPound @ Guantánamo
Praise for Smoke Show:
“Billed as a novel, Smoke Show reads like a verse play, one comprising elegantly concise dialogues among woefully inarticulate, tragically maladapted, and often inebriated adults … Burnham is pitch-perfect all the way through.”
– Publishers Weekly
Praise for The Only Poetry That Matters:
“An idiosyncratic fresh angle on a well-travelled topic”
– Canadian Literature
