Críticas:

"[Sleigh's] command of technique is impeccable. . . . Sleigh has been publishing formidable poetry for almost thirty years, and among American poets of his generation there is no one better. . . . Army Cats is nothing less than a triumph." --David Wojahn, Tikkun "As he moves with masterly control from section to section, style to style, yet pulling along a constant narrative thread, Sleigh shows just how accomplished he is." --Library Journal "The best work in Sleigh's eighth collection continues his effort to use the fruits of civilization to confront the violence and destruction of our time. . . . [his] poems of war provide a shocking clarity." --Publishers Weekly "Sleigh's energy, precision, and unflagging desire to find connection often color the poems. . . . The exactitude with which Sleigh is able to convey specific images and emotions imbues the work in Army Cats with a sense of clarity amid chaos, which in itself is a survival act." --American Poet "At many turns, Sleigh undermines or interrogates the lyricism that propels these poems until the truths that he arrives at feel solid and real. His voice is trustworthy and at the same time unexpected--a perfect combination of effects that often left me, for one, happily quizzical and eager to reread. . . . Army Cats is a dynamic book in which Sleigh sets down his own wrestling with identity, and we are captivated by the multiplicity of selves that emerges." --Kenyon Review "Tom Sleigh's poetry is hard-earned and well founded. I greatly admire the way it refuses to cut emotional corners and yet achieves a sense of lyric absolution." --Seamus Heaney on Tom Sleigh "Sleigh is nearly as prodigal with his gifts as Yeats." --The New York Times Book Review on Tom Sleigh "All those things we'd rather not hear about--war, disease, physical and moral corruption, the nightmare of family, the beauty and heartbreak of love--we hear about in the poems, plays, and essays of Tom Sleigh. The wonder of his work is that no matter the subject, the writing is singular, finished, and--even when unbearable--impossible to ignore. In the midst of the mess we have made of the world, his voice is calm, measured, intelligent, and at times even playful; he is becoming our Jonathan Swift." --J. D. McClatchy, judge's statement for the John Updike Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters on Tom Sleigh

Reseña del editor:

A brilliant new work by one of America's finest and most relevant poets. Tom Sleigh's poetry swerves dramatically from the ordinary moment to the onrush of emergency, the elusive past to the unexpectedly comic. Army Cats confronts the more feral aspects of war, journalism, art and selfhood. Many of the poems are seen as if through a roadside Bomb, or while the smoke hasn't yet cleared from history in the making.
