    This book is very sweet and occasionally powerful. I got it just to read the students' poems, but Koch's prose contributions turned out to have some insights and inspirations about teaching writing. I love the idea of transforming any life through poetry, especially those who feel trapped or hopeless, like these people sometimes did. I'll read anything Koch does, and now I'm excited to get my hands (someday) on his book about teaching poetry writing to children. This book is very sweet and occasionally powerful.

    The idea of teaching writing to old folks in an old folks home is sweet, but it turns out this may be more of an academic document than it first appears to be. I'd reach for it just as soon as I'd reach for Edgar Lee Masters or William Carlos Williams. And get the colloquial straight from the source.

    The first chapter about his experiences in the nursing home teaching poetry is worth the price of admission alone. It's funny how it reminded me of high school students who sometimes feel the same way.
