All the Dead Are Holy, by Larry Levy
Larry Levy is the best kind of writer. His poems—with their honesty and intimacy—invite you in, ask you to sit at the table, and listen to the stories you need to hear about the past that is never past, the wars that will not end, and the people who continue to love even though they are gone. Hearing his stories, you begin to wake to your own stories, your own losses and loves, and finally you want to take his hand and thank him for what he has given you.
— John Guzlowski, Echoes of Tattered Tongues
