"A jolt of the glorious quotidian, startling moves and rhythms make BLUE RAIN MORNING one of the best books of the season."
"Jamey Jones finds the music in the sidewalk and the cracks between."
"Jones is both a resident and traveler of these poems, where "abroad here means elsewhere" and elsewhere is "how to write / this new wave of lost."
"Jamey Jones communicates the truth in poetry."
