Review: Michael Dennis

December 12, 2015

Poetry reviewer Michael Dennis has posted a generous review of Diversion. I can’t deny I’m deeply turned on by being compared to an Ali/Frazier fight.

“Reading George Murray’s Diversion makes me feel sorry for almost every other poet out there.  You could build a rock solid poem out of almost every single line in this book.  Most of us are digging rocks, Murray is mining diamonds.

It’s like watching Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier create such beautiful carnage.  These poems aren’t amateur swats, these are professional punches and they will take the wind right out of you.  Make no mistake, George Murray isn’t the least bit interested in taking prisoners.”

Wow. That is something.
