‘John D. Robinson is an important underground poet totally worth turning your attention to. Although Bukowski & others may have been an initial inspiration, Robinson has now found his own voice and there is a lot to admire about him – the honesty of his writing, his embrace of the alternative small publishing community, his resilience in surviving his past errors and in getting his words out to us.’(Bold Monkey)
