“Reading Tandon’s poetry is like pushing through the twelve hours of an all-night Relay for Life.”

Emi Greiss wrote a very favorable review of Jason Tandon’s Give over the Heckler and Everyone Gets Hurt for the Green Hills Literary Lantern. Here’s our favorite excerpt:

Reading Tandon’s poetry is like pushing through the twelve hours of an all-night Relay for Life.  At 9:00 PM the white paper bags decorated to honor fighters and victims of cancer are lit up from the inside by candles and make you cry.  At 6:00 AM, tired and drained, you laugh to see those special luminaries lining the track crumpled up and thrown away.

You can read the entire review here.

Give over the Heckler and Everyone Gets Hurt, which won the 2006 St. Lawrence Book Award, is available from Black Lawrence Press and Amazon.
