Nature, May 2010 "Keizer is an energetic researcher and an omnivorous writer.... [He] comes across not as a dour partisan for silence but as someone who sees the right to quiet as one of many competing rights. It is a virtue of his ruminative study that it conveys the charm of a hushed library and the appeal of the ruckus outside." Cleveland Plain Dealer, May 10, 2010 "Keizer zaps our assumptions at a merry frequency in his remarkable, thought-provoking new work, The Unwanted Sound of Everything We Want. It is pointed, often exhilarating, and as tightly written as the skin on a drum.... Viewed through Keizer's political lens, it is no accident that prisons are relentlessly noisy, that the poor live in the most degraded soundscapes, that the disabled, the very young and the very old are disproportionately vulnerable to noise.... Keizer writes incisively about 'the magnificent custom bikes' assembled yearly in Sturgis, S.D., for the 'World's Largest Motorcycle Rally' and, a few pages later, the prayer gathering by Lakota trying to protect Mato Paha, or Bear Butte, S.D., from the encroaching biker rally. Keizer lets us hear the grinding of power, yes, but also the poetry of humans seeking to be heard, including our need for quiet."
