Armored Hearts, combining new poems and a selection from previous volumes, offers the power of idiomatic narrative at its naked best. It is refreshing to read a poet who is not obliquely vague, who tells a story cleanly and convincingly, and yet who will not close down mysterious and complicated things about life that simply defy such closure.--Atlanta Journal-Constitution
