Publishers Weekly has honored yet another of BOA's Fall 2012 titles with a *Starred* Review - this time, for Tony Leuzzi's Passwords Primeval: 20 American Poets in Their Own Words.
"Poet and professor, Leuzzi brings questing intelligence and a practitioner’s empathy to this collection of interviews with 20 poets who are diverse in terms of aesthetic allegiance, generation, and practice." The review notes the breadth, not only of the number of prominent poets interviewed in the new book, but of the topics discussed and insights pulled from even the most unexpected of sources.
"The range of topics proves that poetry isn’t just for poets," says the review. "This book will be a joy for anyone who loves the art of conversation, not just the conversation of art."
