Can I give this one six stars out of a possible five?

I came to this book after reading (and loving) a poem of Nutter's in a recent volume of the Best American Poetry. I had no idea how blown away I would be by the voice that I found.

This poetry is intensely beautiful, earthly yet other-worldly... Though the collection concerns itself with death, primarily, there is such vibrancy, such "life" to the lines. This is necessary poetry and something I would highly recommend to any of my friends. I rank this collection up there with the best of Levis and Fairchild - my two favorite poets. I absolutely cannot wait to read more by Nutter. I was left breathless by these poems.
