Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Dunn's style is direct, dramatic, and compelling; his strength lies in a glossy surface sparked by sudden perceptive insights. His subjects take in the garden variety of compulsions and obsessions, pithy fables of modern society, glimpses of city life, the anxiety of everyday experience, the struggle to assert personal values against convention. The tone shifts easily from amusement to pathos, the voice flows with chatty colloquial asides. These poems are quickly read and enjoyed but, unfortunately, not significantly distinguished from many other good verses written in this conversational/surreal vein. However, modesty is part of Dunn's charm; he describes his writing, in the title poem, as 'just these private little efforts to fulfill himself'—an attitude which adds to the attractiveness of his third collection." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
