"I've been a grateful reader of Roger Greenwald's work for many years. This moving collection names again and again the hard names, with their deep tone-falls, that mark the inner landscape of this poetry. It's an emotional terrain that offers the reader any number of routes, all of them finally transcendental. I have the highest regard for Greenwald's poetry."

--Jay Parini, author of New and Collected Poems, 1975-2015

"The Half-Life is a terrific book. I love its formal dexterity and high intelligence. Roger Greenwald has created interiorities that are musically engaging while evoking a brilliant and complex personality."

--Kevin Prufer
