"The poems 'feel' satisfyingly right rather than 'working' logically... These poems grew on me more and more with every reading. Many seemed a tad puzzling at first but soon I, too, was having more than 'Mandatory Fun.'" -- Moira Richards, Off the Coast
A lively, playful collection of poems ... Randall and Shapiro are on a mission here to return poetry to the general reader, and conversely to return the language and experience of everyday people to poetry itself." -- Kristofer Collins, Pittsburgh Magazine
"Funny as they are, some of these poems also bite or have claws or a poetic undercurrent of melancholy and profundity." -- Kathleen Kirk, Escape Into Life
