Praise

Praise

“Michael Ondaatje’s poems read with the same whimsical precision and authority one finds in his prose. He is the most sensibly ironic writer I’ve read in years, and the most generously disposed. Would that all worlds were this deftly attended.”
–Robert Creeley

“Ondaatje is one of the country’s best, a formidable craftsman and artist.”
The Whig-Standard, Kingston

“You feel yourself deep inside his mind and heart, and from there you feel the poem dance.”
–Sharon Olds
