“The only problem with Blood Oranges is that when one starts talking about it, one cannot stop… A cracking book.”—Macdara Woods

 …the best book of poetry I’ve come across in YEARS.”—Grant Cogswell

“An extraordinary poetic journey… it gestures toward future poetic excavations into history’s zest and sorrow, past known and unfamiliar denominations, down through hitherto un-breached layers.”—Billy Ramsell

“Dylan’s poetry is full of life and death, of flesh and seeds, fertility and of constant renewal and ever present extinction. It is a meditation on the persistence of violence, and the parallel persistence of life.”—Sarah Clancy
