" 'Not organs anymore but an idea of connection' - the poetry of Caleb Klaces is an art of linkage: fire to fish to swim; thought to the taboo vocabulary of the body. Intellect is nothing without gentleness, however, and there are delicate poems here of family and love - and striking observations of worlds as far apart as the Aya Sofia, Texas, and the Antarctic. As Klaces says, it's impossible 'to stop one thing becoming another / ever: bliss and everything else.' He accepts the bewildering challenge and guides his fascinated reader through." Richard Price

'These are bold poems: a modern metaphysical writing…Fusing thought and experience, they are startling for their intelligence, but also for their emotional honesty. Caleb Klaces writes disconcertingly and distinctively; he is a poet to watch.'  Jane Griffiths
