    1. Every once in a while I read a book that inspires me so much, feeds ideas directly to my brain so consistently, keeps giving me than I expect, that I need to keep a notepad close by I wrote at least eight mini poems or fragments of my own while reading this book While I was already a big fan from his first book, I Have Touched You, this new collection proved to me that Sherl s brilliance is no fluke These are poems soaked in Florida sweat, dappled in a prescription drug haze, and yearning so ha [...]

    2. Gregory Sherl is going to be huge Plain and simple His chapbook I Have Touched You won Dark Sky Books first chapbook contest and is a whirlwind of sex and want and loneliness and worry Poems of panic or panicked poems Then comes Heavy Petting, the inaugural perfect bound release from Katherine Sullivan s YesYes Books and the first full length collection from Sherl, which is as much a torrent of poetry as I ve never seen lovely with bitterness and obsession and angst and the most earnest love Rea [...]

    3. Great stuff, esp the first section and the prose poetry at the end Sometimes this poetry seems to operate by keeping the reader inside the associations of the poet Luckily, we want to go wherever Gregory Sherl is taking us Recommended reading Sherl s The Oregon Trail Is the Oregon Trail.

    6. Like the best sex, this poetry collection built up to a climatic relationship between reader and writer I never less than enjoyed the work, but as I read through the book over the course of a Sunday, I found myself praising it , , Gregory Sherl does what I find lacking in much of even the best literature, he writes like he means it, like he s redefining it, as if it has come from nowhere Though he s not ignorant of what s come before, he s also not tethered to it, not safe or predictable There [...]

    7. A great collection of quirky, charming, bleak, and adoring explorations of love and the general confusion of young adulthood Twisted and beautiful images I check my checking account I can t afford the finished product so we put the baby on layaway draw readers in to Sherl s comprehension of the world and hover in the mind well after reading An excellent read.

    8. Really charming The whole confessional thing gets a little repetitive What I really appreciated was how it felt like it was written in sequence, probably because it was, for the most part, so you get the sense of progression and development Sexy, too.
