"This is everything one could wish for in an audio recording," says Library Journal. "Well recorded, with two poets who are exceptionally fine readers, it captures all the conviviality between the poets and their warm interaction with the audience. Listeners, enveloped in the atmosphere, easily become an integral part of that audience... the interchange is as open and honest as is the writing.... Highly recommended."
