"This is not a book about AIDS"
Kevin Prufer compares D.A. Powell to Ralph Waldo Emerson in the Cincinnatti Review:
Powell does not aim to be merely a confessional poet; rather, beyond the framework of this narrative is a larger identification at work—not one between lover and betrayer but between lover and a natural landscape that cannot help but become a sort of Emersonian Over-soul.
