Praise for “Ghost, Like a Place”

"The ghosts that haunt Iain Haley Pollock’s poems have substance. Some have names: Tamir. Rex. Emmett. Black boys of Philadelphia. Their voices are 'the chattering of crows in a distant sycamore.' There is awe in these voices, and self-deprecation, and lament. Most―despite the fact that there is little comfort to offer here―there is a faith in the body, in humanity, to bear its burdens. Read Ghost, like a Place, and 'know, finally, the rapture and wildness of belief.'" ―Meg Kearney, author of Home by Now
