Reviews

Sugar Run Road is an inspired, American epic. M.L. Williams, Miramar"

"Sugar Run Road is an inspired, American epic." M.L. Williams, Miramar"

What s important to Ochester is rendering the world in our art as we find it not as we would like it to be. There s no need for long-winded puffery when this life offers such wonders as the two young toothless men singing Stairway to Heaven with enormous gusto in karaoke night at the serbian club, south side, pittsburgh: a haiku. Ochester s sugar run road makes an argument for poetry less as a kind of alchemy where the real is remade as art but rather poetry as witness sharing the beauty and wonders of the real that we too often fail to notice. Kristofer Collins, Pittsburgh Magazine"
