Critical Praise for Mass for Shut-Ins

“Such a bounty of intelligence and pleasure packed inside here! These are deeply lovable love songs, odes to friends and lovers, the sound of crickets and grackles, BB guns and boozy evenings on the Plains. To me they manage to be cheerful even when they’re heartbreaking. So here’s to you, Mr. Robinson.” –Kurt Andersen, author of Fantasyland

“Todd Robinson is a poet doing his best to figure a life; doing it with a fair share of humor, but also seriously, honestly, as though he and the rest of us weren’t in the throes of a new century already worn to a nub of “real work and sorrow.” –David Wyatt, author of Gathering Place
