    Review quote
    "Sensitively chosen and intelligently introduced . . . Ford's selection makes it possible to see more clearly how inward O'Hara's poetry was at its best . . . For O'Hara a poem was truthful when it was personal . . . [His] elegies succeed because long after he discarded any religious belief in immortality, he retained the aesthetic sensibility that took it seriously." --Edward Mendelson, "The New York Review of Books"
