Frosted, writes Eileen Myles, "pushes the reader to fill in the dots. It's angled poetry, full of unwilling tears, abruptness." Frosted is radiant with musical voices. "It's a very cool truth, a slow nostalgic ellipse." as Eileen Myles elaborates. Tony Towle notes "mysterious ironies and enjambments, lines that are stunningly odd, and various kinds of oblique narrative that may owe something to 'language' influences, but are often also resonant of Jimmy Schuyler as well--while a good deal of humor--recherché, direct and occasionally zany--glints through it all." An all round lovely and fresh performance.
