Reviews of Falling Together:

Falling Together - Lorne Daniel“Falling Together sparkles with sensitivity and truth. At once down-to-earth and evocative, this collection depicts family life from the perspective of a single father. Lorne Daniel engraves his poems – his words keen blades that carve lush details in ordinary settings, grounding all with sure emotion. These poems delight with their spontaneity.” – Anita Hurwitz, Poetry Canada Review

“He doesn’t shy away from subjects which in clumsier hands could turn sticky: a son’s favourite blanket, a daughter learning to count, tucking children into bed. Kudos, Lorne.” – Pat Jasper, Poetry Toronto

“Daniel has a particular skill in evoking memory, coupled with the intelligence and control to explore broad themes on an intimate level.” – Andrew Brooks, Canadian Literature vol 117

“Lorne Daniel’s poetry in Falling Together is concerned with the elements of life, love, separation and pain. And it is full of risks. There is little cushioning from the cutting truth.” – Linda Christie, FreeLance

“Emotion and incident are linked in ways that accurately reflect the way we synthesize experience, putting it into the context of the rest of our lives rather than magnifying the poetic moment as a separate phenomenon.” – G.P. Greenwood, The Calgary Herald
