Praise for The December Project:
"Time stopped in December when I read this fine book of postcard poems. Written from short bright days and long cold nights, filled with Sean Cole's signature humor, these deeply felt and completely original poems address those of us who also consider December a project. The poems move from the mundane to the serious, from love to war to simple pop songs, all in a voice that captured me at once and wouldn't let go." --Wyn Cooper, author of Postcards from the Interior
"Read this book in the middle of the night. Pure clear words as real as any novel. Read this book in the middle of the day, by sunlight or in rain. Send the words to everyone. Everyone needs these words. Who would have thought that poetry could open so gently into the world? Who would have thought the brilliant, tender cadences of Sean Cole's Itty City would slow into this cold radiant narrative of awareness? Still brilliant, still tender; slower now, and even deeper." --Joseph Lease, author of Broken World, forthcoming from Coffee House Press
