In early July, Blackbird Poetry published Richard Jurgens’ exquisite collection of love poems entitled One Summer. Among those who took especial delight in the book was the poet and editor Richard Livermore, whose online magazine Ol’ Chanty has graciously given this website permission to post his highly favorable review.

Exquisite Corpse editor Andrei Codrescu wants to build school cabins from books. But he needs help and learned advice on the feasibility of carrying out this noble project, especially from architects, masons, and cement connoisseurs.
Dear Poetry Fanatics,
Every now and then a poetry book comes along that is at once excitingly unique and exceptionally good. A book with words and phrases that easily make it on their own but are enhanced by the presentation. Where the manner in which the poems appear allow you to actually feel the author creating them.
Libretti, by the poet and performance artist ‘par excellence’ Jacek Nichs, is just such a book.
This book is rich. This book is packed full of the real stuff that life is made of. This book belongs in your hands!
