Every Wound Has a
“The poetry of James Bertolino unseals our vision, giving it a voice at once gentle, wise, and even profound. Here beauty and truth are inseparably commingled. I cannot read him without being forever changed. Line by line, Bertolino’s language alchemically transforms everyday experience into something akin to magic and wonder.” —Charles Johnson, National Book Award fiction writer, author of Middle Passage
Finding Water, Holding Stone
“In Finding Water, Holding Stone, Bertolino’s voice is assured, his language so dexterous the craft is almost invisible. He is part-sage, part-priest, part-naturalist, part-trapeze artist who moves with the greatest of ease.” —Denise Duhamel
“The poems here, suffused with the mysterious strength of wounds and the tender gravity of love, are presided over by an eye that penetrates whatever fixes its gaze, and a faultless ear for the music therein.” —David Rigsbee
