BEARABLE WEIGHT BY MICHAEL CLEARY




Cleary has a dramatist’s touch for bringing characters to life. He makes his American experience both compellingly particular and universal.  
 
—ReMark Magazine


His poetry has lost neither the ironic wit nor the defiant tenderness….He continues to write with irreverence and insight, mixing tough guy language with compassion. He’s a master story-teller with a wise man’s introspSection about what to be nostalgic and angry and kind about.

 
—Foreword Magazine


In Cleary’s work, blood, lust, and loss blend with humor, passion, and innocence. They’re elegant and brawny at the same time.
 
—The Post-Star


Linguistic images carving an authentic, deeply evocative world out of bark and rock, waterfalls and ice…and especially out of human flesh with its passions and fumblings, culpabilities and tenderness.
 
—Small Press Review
