    “What are you looking for?  I think you'll find it here in Richard H. Fox's second poetry collection, wandering in puzzle boxes. They're all present and accounted for: the poems of love and loss, health and healing, identity and homage, the lyrics and the narratives intertwined.   When this speaker tells me, "I want to wear Coke-bottle glasses, corneas blue whale eyes," I believe him. In fact, I'd follow this man down Alligator Alley and the Massachusetts Turnpike.  I'd stand beside him in "the mourner's waiting line," share a beer while "a folk singer/belts out francophone lyrics over a dreadnought."  I say I would, but I already have.  Put your thumb out, and hitch this humble, honest ride.” Julie Marie Wade, author of When I Was Straight: Poems and Postage Due: Poems & Prose Poems
       
    “Eleanor Roosevelt spoke of the confidence and courage that come when one has looked fear in the face. She could have been speaking about Rich Fox, whose new book is testament to that remarkable confidence and courage. These poems ring with a power and intensity that come only after achieving a kind of fearlessness, having looked fear in the face and becoming empowered to speak to and with great conviction now about love and war and loss and friendship. Fox wanders in the puzzle box of life with a clear-eyed intensity, as a gifted writer, observer and friend to us all, writing with "flashes of yearning, grace" about this puzzling, mysterious, and infinitely beautiful world.” - John Hodgen, AWP Donald Hall Prize in Poetry, author of Grace and Heaven & Earth Holding Company

    Richard Fox’s unique muse wanders through the landscapes of cancer, aging, mourning, Judaism and Boomer memory to produce poems of riveting power and imagination. His cancer poems are unforgettable and his remembrances of times past and friends lost are propelled by a compelling lyrical narrative that seeks to unlock the truth from the puzzle boxes of life and loss within us.” - Joe Pacheco, author of Sanibel Joe's Songbook and Alligator in the Sky

    “It's official—I need a phrase that goes beyond ‘brilliant genius’ to describe Richard Fox and
    Time Bomb, his new collection of poetry. From a letter John Lennon sends to his son Sean's teacher explaining why he'll be out that day, to hippies, beats, Romeo & Juliet at Auschwitz, a lover named Madeleine, and Mrs. Noah's Bitch, this book is all over the place! Achingly beautiful, mercilessly evocative and compelling, these poems resonate with anyone has had to deal with sorrow and fear. The stakes couldn't be higher as we journey with him through his battle with cancer, so elegantly described in stark, heart rendering detail that you simply can't stop reading. With grace, courage, and humor, Time Bomb will move you, upset you, frighten you and inspire you. One of the year's best. By far.” - Robin Stratton, author of Of Zen and Men and In His Genes, editor of Boston Literary Magazine

    "Richard Fox honors the phrase 'provoked to poetry.' His poems are provoking and provocative and the very best of them deal with suffering and illness, with wildness and a new kind of Jewish identity.
    Time Bomb is not cancer free. It is vital and essential reading." - Liz Rosenberg, author of The Laws of Gravity and Home Repair

    “Rich Fox calls himself a small poet at large, but there is nothing small about the poems in
    Time Bomb. They are large-themed and large-hearted, framed by a world at war with itself and a world all the more lovely when it is almost taken from us, when we see how filled to overflowing it is with light and joy and longing and loss. These are well crafted, poignant, clever and ultimately wise poems which leave the reader wanting to believe one can throw one’s arms around this hard won world, and, better yet, that the world will hold us in its arms as well.” - John Hodgen, AWP Donald Hall Prize in Poetry, author of Heaven & Earth Holding Company and Grace

    Time Bomb is a testament to maturity and hard-won wisdom. These finely crafted poems radiate intelligence, black humor and vivid imagination, and are filled with imagery that startles repeatedly but always feels exactly right. Richard Fox is a poet whose raw materials are illness, loss, and disappointment and like the alchemists of old, he changes lead to gold.” - Charles Coe, author of Picnic on the Moon and All Sins Forgiven: Poems for My Parents

    "I found myself reading
    Time Bomb the way I read Shakespeare ... slow, savoring each line individually before considering its contribution to the poem. With descriptive precision and loving humor Richard Fox brought me deeper into his world than I would have previously believed possible. This was the most satisfying read I have had in years." - Don White, author, singer songwriter, comedian
