"If any poet working in America at present has the power to smash complacency, it is [Axelrod].... If his work is news to you, you're lucky to hold this book in your hand. Here, from several collections now hard to obtain, are some of the most lovely, harrowing, and outrageously funny poems from his first twenty publishing years. For good measure, there is a trove of new work besides." --X. J. Kennedy "David B. Axelrod's New and Selected Poems is a striking and extremely readable book. His title, Home Remedies, reminds me that Stephen Crane thought of his poems as 'pills," medicine, and that William Stafford thinks maybe that each of his own poems is in some way at least a mild protest poem. Axelrod's voice is spare, sharp, always engaging in ways that Crane and Stafford are, and convincing within his own ironies and perceptions These are twenty years of poems here, and this is a welcome book." --Wiliam Heyen
