"Here we have poems of quiet reflection on the natural world of 'ladybugs and bees.' And too, poems with strange turns in which we get off the bus at what may be the wrong stop to find we have arrived at-Mars? Not to forget well-placed jabs against bigotry, plastic, guns, and mass shootings, along with 'radioactive dreams.' Brendan McBreen's The Memory of Water is a rich and gratifying read."

-Priscilla Long, author of Holy Magic and Crossing Over: Poems

"Brendan McBreen is a respected stalwart in the Puget Sound area poetry scene. They promote the work of many fine poets, of which they are one. This new collection, The Memory of Water, impressively demonstrates their ability to balance innovative craft, wry wit, and poignant resonance."

-David D. Horowitz, author of Slow Clouds over Rush Hour
