Check out Mike Walker's review of Ira Sadoff's True Faith over at the Coal Hill Review. Walker sees Sadoff as a chronicler of American society, a guise through which he practices poetry and vice versa. It is in this regard that Walker compares Sadoff's vocation as a writer to I.B. Singer, in that he has a "near-scientific ability to record the topography of both place and emotion, but also the discerning nature to make something more of it than a narrow historiography." Such topographies range in physicality, describing the United States from Virginia to Texas, and of course depicting the psychological and emotional implications of such places as the mind encounters them. For more, check out the whole review on Coal Hill Review's website. Ira Sadoff's True Faith was released this April and can be found at the BOA Editions bookstore.
