  • Reviews

    “This man is, without a doubt, one of the finest young poets writing in America.”
    —Regan Good, The New York Observer

    “Thank goodness for Geoffrey Nutter, whose poetry seems to be powered equally by sunlight, virtue, wonder, and humility.”
    —Nate Pritts, Rain Taxi

    “Nutter is a poet whose hand rests on the rudder, but who is also confident enough to let his poem-ships follow the current underneath. It’s a movement similar to the way dreams progress...where the propulsive force of associative imagery leads each poem forward down the page.”
    —Michelle Taransky, Time Out Chicago

    “Geoffrey Nutter writes about things—or so it seems. Poems about strawberries, battleships, and elevators begin on track and morph into burgeoning blossoms. The poems unfurl smoothly and astonishingly, 'winding toward a pinnacle.'”
    —Jeffrey Cyphers Wright, The Brooklyn Rail
