The Unemployed Man Who Became A Tree is “Extraordinary”

Grady Harp gives Kevin Pilkington’s poetry collection The Unemployed Man Who Became A Tree five stars, and writes that Kevin “creates (or shares) a world that surrounds him, a world he molds into poems that, while seemingly straight forward and simple, force us to look at people and places and ideas in a manner that makes the reader momentarily paralyzed at the end of each poem, not wanting to move on lest the extraordinary mood created might not be accessible should we leave it.” Read the entire review here, and buy your copy of this brilliant and funny collection here.
