"what lasts, words like hooks to catch trout, love that got away"- D.G. Jones
"John Thompson searched deeply among humanity's most hidden places and brought back to us poems of remarkable beauty. The uncollected poems and translations only add to the greatness of his gift. No one who reads his life's work can go away unchanged. "- Patrick Lane
