“McCreesh doesn't see what we see. He's looking elsewhere, at the underside, what's beneath, what's outside. He sees the people that go everyday unseen, some not wanting to be seen, some just needing to be noticed once to make everything okay, to prove to themselves that there's a reason to get out of bed the next morning. McCreesh sees all this, then he borrows a pen, buys a Guinness with a smile for the waitress, and writes it all down. And we are better for it.” – Stephen Hines, author of The Confusion Will be Enough for Them to Leave You Alone and re/translate
“Hosho McCreesh continues to be a force in American as well as international poetry.” – Matthew Ward, Publisher, Mary Celeste Press
