Billy Collins writes of Keeping Time, “I have long been anticipating this first book and the chance to express how highly I value Suzanne Cleary’s poetry. Her poems have a vigorous forward roll to them and are strung together by daring chains of association.” Mark Jarman writes of Trick Pear, “Cleary’s is a genuine lyric gift as rich as it is rare.”
