Looking to get your Wordsworth?

what are folks saying about his writing!?


I donít read novels or poetry or frankly, anything that doesnít contain a reference to me, but I hear, from many people, good people, that Lovittís writing is horrible, the worst. So donít order it; donít read it!!!! And remember, I and I alone can save you. D. Trumpe


Though his writing doesnít directly support the arms industry, and in fact on some levels, is actually disarming, I still am recommending it to all of my long- time friends and colleagues who have helped sustain me through these many years of public service. H. Clintone


A mensch, the real deal, completely non-meshuginah. Canít get enough of his revolutionary work. Remember - hard working poets must be subsidized and a minimum per-word rate standard set! B.Sanderse


Ö.chock full of many hot, and inconvenient truths!† A.Goree


Ö.though I may not pronounce it properly, now that I am retired and have time to read, I am particularly enjoying his new clear poetryÖ. G. Bushe

A wonderful book, much more enlightening than the other 10,000 or so books I have written forwards for.  But, of course, my endorsement is impermanent.  His Holiness D. Lamae
