Reviews of Kingdom Come:

"John Estes' poems—precise, quizzical, erudite, playful—remind us of the revelatory work wit can do when matched to a sensuous mind."

~ Michele Glazer
Author of On Tact, & the Made Up World

"These are the poems of the perplexed. More specifically, they are the poems of the perplexed but good-humored, the perplexed but well-disposed—an all but forgotten species of intellectual whose lineage includes Chesterton, Orwell, and Lippmann. They are, moreover, poems that treat domestic life—life in common—with due respect, and with intermittent awe."

~ Scott Cairns, Author of Compass of Affection
