What Writers have said about Gerry LaFemina

  1. VANISHING HORIZON is full of gritty and graceful intelligence. Consistently and sumptuously detailed, these poems amount to a kind of landscape of the soul, that aspect of self that runs the gauntlet—weathers, wearies, kneels—then grins and keeps on. It's hard to make a way in this world, to see clearly without coming to deep despair. This book is good light
    Tim Seibles on Vanishing Horizon
  2. Little Heretic records the revolutions of the spirit. On this turning wheel of what is holy/what is profane, LaFemina opens the world: "I learned love is/a dialectic." In these full-throated, passionate poems of CBGBs, bizz-saw guitars, and Second Avenue Station, we enter "the magic cabinet of Manhattan"--with the sacred thrashers of Bowie, The Clash, and Alien Sex Fiend. In a savvy, tender-hearted voice, LaFemina runs the subway line between remorse and redemption, burning with truth: what holds us to the ground is not the mortal body, but the angels on the B train, taking us home."
    Jan Beatty on Little Heretic
  3. LaFemina is a writer for the new millenium--his gritty, authentic voice is full of the anxiety of possibility, his characters restless with disappointment and longing, trying ot make the world cough up just one true thing. Reading these stories is like taking a walk on the top rail of a suspension bridge--all belief and carelessness--sad and comic and all together human.
    Jonis Agee on Wish List
  4. Although a clear-headed and fairly straight forward narrative drives these poems, strung out easily over three or four lines at a time so they move gracefully down the page, there is more here than deft and nifty story telling. There is ethos and pathos here of the old kind, when the poet manages a balance between thinking and feeling that allows these poems to be genuine and modest .... And there is humor here, and honest chuckling at one's own stupid fate. Most importantly, there is a raw reckoning of the self in its sometimes most vulnerable states that's at the heart of our best poetry."
