I was struck by the wisdom of this work, a quiet wisdom that inheres in images so fully imagined that one can never forget them. The language has been so thoroughly purified that truth becomes, in the telling, austerely beautiful.--Jay Parini
There's no word for what Young does, only for what he accomplishes--the capturing of small, daily miracles.--Dorianne Laux
