Additional praise:

“Robert Louthan is a great new talent. I recommend his book highly.”
—Charles Simic

"Anyone can be original. What is far more important is writing that strikes to a depth of the psyche. For an image to affect us, Magritte has said, there must be affinities between the objects represented by the image. The poems of Robert Louthan reveal thee affinities evidence of a world that exists all around us, if we have eyes to see it. To read Shrunken Planets is a fascinating and unforgettable experience."
—Louis Simpson

“Your poems scare me, mister.”
—Anonymous
