“Budde offers a bracing outward orientation remote from ‘the weariness, the fever, and the fret’ of the Keatsian lyric ego.” —Andre Furlani for Canadian Literature
“For good or ill, the aphasic cacophony Budde orchestrates captures well our political actualities.” —Andre Furlani for Canadian Literature
“The concept of “America” as a transgressor is not new, but Budde extrapolates much more about “America” and its decline – specifically focusing on the linguistic side to “America,” rather than the overtly, overtly political.” —Small Press Distribution blog
