PW gives THE TREMBLING ANSWERS starred review

A new *starred* review from Publishers Weekly is calling Craig Morgan Teicher's The Trembling Answers an "affecting examination of the trade-offs that parenthood, adulthood, and art require."

With poems that are "perceptive, tender" and "open," Teicher documents his "mortal responsibilities," while also offering a "chance to escape them." Many of his poems also focus on the actual craft of poetry, offering "genuine insight on verse as a vocation."

The review concludes, "This is a modest book, but also a rare, undeceived one. It offers only what it can, which may be all that poetry can hope to: small joys and hard-won wisdom."
