The writing is raw and authentic; it touches you. One of my favorites is “What Did You Love About Your Town?” Pay particular attention to the fourth stanza, so well-written and enjoyable. Thank you, Steve.

— Kathy Pottetti

Description


Rarely have I encountered a poet whose poems travel so widely in time and space and take such surprising twists between the autobiographical and the imagined, the contemporary and the mythic, the everyday and the surreal, and often the visionary. Steven Huff's The Fire in the Hill burns with a yearning for "a rebirth of wonder," for "more and fresher alphabets to sing," and it "keeps you awake like a piranha hunting."- Jeffrey Harrison * * * * Work I love is A Fire in the Hill, work that makes me think where I come from and where I go. Clarity makes poetry reach for the depths of being, and this is precisely what Steven Huff's poems do. Memory is his tapestry, passion the rope that holds together our common humanity. Few poets these days can do this as abundantly and generously as Huff in this his fine and most recent book.-Pablo Medina, author of The Island Kingdom.
