“From soft butter on the tongue to the screech of horror-film violins, Glose’s latest collection contains the sensual imagery of an epic drama. His words remind us that movie-memories are like a shared communion, their scripts becoming a “common creed” that bind humanity together. Although “life is never as glamorous as the glossy movie poster predicts,” this collection asks that we assume our leading roles and reopen the “dreams we’ve shoved into our pockets, folded so many times.” Humorous, alluring, and deep-hearted—a must-read.”
“With this playful collection Glose extends butter-dipped fingers and invites us to lean back and take in a show that is one part social admonition, one part nostalgia, and three parts whimsy. We can only accept, finding in his pages our own reflections in his lens: gloss, foibles, kryptonite, and all. He’s got something for everyone: a little love, a little action, a little black-and-white high drama, the poems cascading together like perfect tresses of a Hollywood starlet, like 'months of B-roll bleeding / on cutting room floors.'"
