Voices de la Luna calls Jim Daniels a "true master" of his art; and his latest poetry collection Birth Marks (BOA, 2013) displays just that. "Reading Jim Daniels' poems... reminds us that we are facing a muse, a working class poet who speaks from the alleys of Detroit or the narrow country road when he crosses the country with his bike ... I'm mesmerized by the poems in his latest collection, Birth Marks. When it comes to rendering serious poetry, Daniels is a true master who can produce remarkable passages...The poems are from the city streets, from Detroit, and are about the fathers who worked and spent their lives producing miracles. Daniels is a working class poet who speaks of their struggle and pain. His latest book of poems (his fourteenth poetry collection) travels from Detroit to Ohio to Pittsburgh, from one post-industrial city to another, across jobs and generations."
