Library Journal recently placed Geffrey Davis' Revising the Storm and Keetje Kuipers' The Keys to the Jail on its list of "Thirty Amazing Poetry Titles for Spring 2014."

According to the feature, "Davis’ lyrical debut is rooted in the tender memories of childhood; a boy observes the actions of his father and later comes into his manhood, reflecting on the lessons of his youth and what it means to be a father. Signaling the frailty that we are made to feel when we’re vulnerable, these poems give voice to the important and powerful role of family..."

Calling The Keys to the Jail "stunning," the review continues: "Kuipers is a keeper ... Readers will feel the impassioned yet controlled energy that is lifted from these poems; fearless and possessing a precise sense of timing, ­Kuipers’s work keeps us reading."
