Fear Itself

4.23  ·  Rating details ·  61 Ratings  ·  2 Reviews
"In his new collection of poetry, Rice is an expert practitioner of the paranoiac-surreal . . . . His true subject is the uneasy equation between horror and beauty, the 'liquification of flame' and the 'liquid of order.' He is often capable of delivering the instructive surprises of the best poetry."

--Graham Christian, Library Journal
