"Estha Weiner's sensibility is beautifully unique--a blend of Beckett and Dorothy Parker, Maine and New York City, loss and evocation. That things don't work out is a form of them working out and that fact is crucial to the very adult and bittersweet ethos Estha Weiner deftly summons. The poems have a gnomic quality; their concision is the habit of someone who bravely shapes retorts to the breezy slanders of time."

-- Baron Wormser
