"Inside The Splintered Wood is tender and deeply human. Myles Gordon is simply an outstanding poet." - Kathleen Spivack, author of With Robert Lowell And His Circle

"Inside The Splintered Wood is a very funny book. But don't take this poet lightly. He'll be the one telling the "joke of utter humanity" when the place blows up."
- Natasha Saje, author of Bend

"...The debut collection from Myles Gordon is at once brave and ravenous; an embodiment of love starved for itself."
- Brendan Constantine, author of Calamity Joe

"A remarkable sonnet sequence lies at the heart of Myles Gordon's brave collection about family and history and the resulting wounds and recovery. "
- Jennifer Barber, author of Given Away

The family that trains together...

Want a true test of family closeness? Try a train ride with a family of four (including a 15 year old and 11 year old), packed into a 6 by 10 "sleeper" car (for 15 hours) over holiday break. We did it and not only survived but thrived! (Although I would recommend dropping any prohibitions on electronic devices and let the kids click away - if it keeps them calm for long stretches). Following an extra couple of days off for snow, we're back, and we're here to continue the school year in the new year.
