“...[T]he author's firm craft and uncommonly mature vision transform loss to a complex, buoyant beauty. ”

“Goodman's poems are marvelously realized into crisp and compressed lyrics not easily forgotten. Far From Sudden frequently surprises, even as we are seduced by sights and sounds of the ordinary animated with astonishing and eloquent force.”
