These fine, rich poems grapple honestly with a complex world, and make love with it at the same time. It is a difficult feat to accomplish, and David Koehn does it with style. -- Andrew HudginsDavid Koehns Coil is an impressive debut. His language is packed with intense music of the heart. In streams, on skis, in bars, Koehn knows his landscapes, and his people, and he writes about them with poise, authority, and heart. -- Jim Daniels
