Autobiomythography & Gallery is the best new book of poetry read by this reviewer this year. It is incredibly strong

Matt Soucy, reviewing for Coldfront

[“Gallery”] is particularly impressive.

Don DeLillo

This stunning debut explores and collides the dual experiences of self and world in a language and music superbly calibrated. There is an authority of voice and a sweep of experience that graces each of these beautifully made poems.

Stuart Dischell

I am especially moved by the series entitled “Memory of the Body,” finding in each a living portrait of one cognizant and honest in the minutes of his life.

Claudia Keelan

Inventive and eclectic, Pan’s poems home in on the order in the chaos.

“Ode to the MQ-9 Reaper,” a poem about drones, in The New York Times
