The Imperfect

Westown Press, 2005


“This beautiful volume brings together eight of Regan Good’s strange and elegant poems. The chiming of church bells, piano keys, gunshots, and rain ring through this work creating an undermusic of fascination and severity. At times richly baroque, at other timesmodern as a new pin, associative and open-ended yet full of conviction, the poems here ‘compose a place from which to speak,’ building a vision of a world that is at once painfully cruel and unknowably gorgeous.”
