Some more kind words for my new book

A few days ago in the Globe and Mail, George Fetherling kindly mentioned my latest collection in a lovely column about his home library, saying, "The Reinvention of the Human Hand by Paul Vermeersch is a remarkable collection, deep and rich."

A couple of days later (i.e. yesterday), novelist Mark Sampson gave my book a thorough review on his blog, and this is what he had to say: "The Reinvention of the Human is, quite simply, a powerhouse book of poetry, an astonishing feat for a poet who has not yet turned forty."

I am grateful that the book is being read by people who like it, and more grateful that they want to spread the word.

UPDATE: Mark Sampson's review has been reposted on the Maisonneuve Magazine website. Thanks everyone.
