Philadelphia Stories Reviews Necessary Myths

I was thrilled to check into Facebook this morning and see that Philadelphia Stories magazine had posted a new review of my book Necessary Myths. In the review Peter Baroth says:

 

Clauser is a master of wordcraft. There is a kind of late afternoon buzz quality to his descriptions of nature – even in PSSummerCoverits impermanence. I can definitely see the sun setting on so much of what he describes where we can find such things as “a gossiping spring between rocks…” (“The Children Discover a Spring Between Rocks”). And also perhaps, ever so vaguely, there is a yearning for a terribly remote and tenuous unfallen past. A garden that was probably already beginning to petrify moments after its creation.

New Book Review

Hey look, Philadelphia Stories and Courtney Bambrick posted a new review of my book The Trouble with Rivers. Read it here.

In it Brambrick compares my writing to Claudia Emerson, so I guess I’m going to have to look up her work. She says some other nice things, so be kind and read it. Also see the review of my friend Liz Chang’s new book What Ordinary Objects here. I plan to post my own review of that book as soon as I get some of my other deadline work behind me. Also, my tomatoes are ready to be picked.
