"Anis Mojgani restores us to the genius of child-mind--his poems
are heroic adventures that take us outward and upward for our own
collective good."---Tony Hoagland
"Anis...you and other young poets (of your talent) are the future of American poetry and frankly, that fills me with joy."--Thomas Lux
"Over the Anvil We Stretch [Anis Mojgani's first book]...is a juggling act of the epic and the intimate. I read it and it echoes."---David Gordon Green, Pineapple Express
