"The Uses of Imperfection marks
the emergence of a formidable new talent in American poetry.
McMahon has a fierce eye for the orphaned experience, a
sure voice of his own and the instinctual feel for rhythm and language
necessary to become one of our great future poets. Take time to sit, read,
and reacquaint yourself again with the particulars of your world through
The Uses of Imperfection."
Whidbey Island, WA
"A new voice and what a voice it is! McMahon gives us poem after poem, each
one as rich and fine as the last. He gives us the common details of life
intertwined with the quiet, weighty emotions we keep to ourselves and
suddenly there’s magic."
Christine Mauer review,
(UW Bookstore "staff picks")
"What a satisfying read! Here’s
a man who offers full-fleshed stories inside the brevity and
lyricism of poetry."
