Rooted in everyday experiences, Campbell McGrath's poems have a brevity and immediacy that adapt effectively to audiobook listening. His images are literal and direct, with few metaphors or "deeper meanings," and the poems don't require repeated listening. McGrath's voice doesn't sound professionally trained, but he is a good interpreter of his poems' rhythms and emphases, and if you like his work, you'll surely appreciate his delivery. He does at times fall into that tone of spellbound reverence characteristic of so many academic poetry readings. But the prevailing high spirits and good humor of this collection will endear it to many listeners. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
