“Reading these poems, it’s evident that John Sibley Williams is a poet with complete control. The texture of his lines is rich and precise. The syntax demands attention and participation. As readers we get the pleasure of untangling each sentence, each line, into not just meaning, but an accumulation of surprising language and images. The speaker in these poems says, I’m not sure how to explain myself / to myself. These poems don’t falsely posture with knowledge, but rather, present us with a catalog of curiosities, a longing to understand all the things we are afraid to name.”

"Australia was bigger than he'd imagined’. Sid is an American tourist on honeymoon with his beautiful wife, Charlene. The ramifications from an accident while en route to their hotel prove to be greater than Sid can imagine also. Self-centered and detached, Sid shows little emotion after hitting a dog on the road. Charlene by contrast is visibly upset and expresses concern. The accident in "Accidents" highlights the underlying tension and division between the couple and triggers an intense, unpredictable and revealing journey."

"While reading the story, I felt I was peeling back an age-worn snapshot, and actually meeting the people behind the sepia tones."
