| The Task, The Hoard & The Long Walk Home
With a seemingly effortless command of language, David Lieberman pulls us into his world and reminds us that lives are adventures of mythic proportions where questions come more readily than answers.

An elegant little book with a beautiful lyrical tautness, filled with deeply personal statements that reveal universal human truths.

A collection replete with wit and craft, but the real gifts here are the insights into telling moments by a voice you come to care about.

Lieberman's ability to merge imagery with the musical properties of language produces poetic effects that are intriguing and sometimes haunting.
Tom Williams, Editor, RTC Magazine, Scotts Valley, California
The poems ... are about the things we most often mythologize in our lives, love and sex and death, and almost all reveal moments of beauty and tenderness and grief in a way that makes us see in a new way. Lieberman accomplishes this primarily through the music of his language, the singing of someone who is in love with words and the way words sound in our mouths when we say them, and the way sound makes a meaning all its own, separate from, but at the same time interwoven with, the lexical meaning of what is being delivered.
