Fire to Fire Reviews
"His narrative style is expansive, filled with what has been described as a "lyric glitter" that creates radiance around the ordinary." - Library Journal.
"Doty satisfies the ear and the mind in much of Fire to Fire. At times his poems become too abstract or overblown, especially the new work. Thats when readers will most appreciate and miss his ability to reveal moments that they might otherwise have overlooked .... Yet weaknesses aside, [this work is] not just memorable but necessary." - The Christian Science Monitor.
"Fire to Fire should solidify Doty's position as a star of contemporary American poetry
The poems combine close attention to the fragile, contingent things of the world with the constant, almost unavoidable chance of transcendence." - Boxed Signature Review, Publishers Weekly.
"Doty's facility with his chosen form...is so natural that the craft in his work is all but invisible; he makes the damnably difficult look deceptively simple." - Booklist.
