  • Reviews

    Mary Morris, reviewing Klappert's Circular Stairs, Distress in the MIrrors in The Montserrat Review, wrote,

    It's not just the superb wit and eloquent writing embodied in this collection, but the constant stirring of surprises, of some great soul searching, if you will. The images are breathtaking. What is most ingenious about this writer is how he tackles difficult subjects, such as war and race, producing poetry with the social message he intends but with startling grace.
