“Queer Poet’s Collection Fulfills Promise”

In a recent issue of the Pittsburgh edition of Out, Christine Doreian Michaels reviewed The Brother Swimming Beneath Me by Brent Goodman. Here are some of our favorite snippets from the review, titled “Queer Poet’s Collection Fulfills Promise”:

“An arresting title is something I hope to find in any book, but particularly poetry, where every word counts. Brent Goodman does not disappoint with The Brother Swimming Beneath Me.”

“(Goodman) transcends the hideousness of inexplicable suffering and early loss through an understanding beyond mere fraternal love to true Bruderschaft…If you only pick up a poetry book on rare occasions, make it this one.”

The Brother Swimming Beneath Me is available from Black Lawrence Press and Amazon.
