Susan Beth Furst:
Does Fish-God Know is a remarkable collection. I highly recommend this book for all readers and writers of poetry, haiku, and related literature.
Alan Summers is this century's Basho. Highly recommended.
One of the first books I have read in the modern haiku style, having isolated myself for years. Alan has introduced both the one and two line haiku and I intend to imitate him in a sincere flattery.
In addition to being a wonderful collection of Mr. Summers' unique haiku, this book serves as a study in how to write in the genre. The scope of moods and insights is brilliant. The use and command of the poetic line is remarkable.
Paul David Mena
Thank you for writing such a vital work.
If you're not familiar with his work then you'll be rushing out to buy other titles by him.
These are NEW haiku as they live and breathe on the back of tradition but are present in the world of the 21st century.
Alan Summers makes use of the Western mind and a Japanese tradition to show that haiku has a place in the modern world, and will still have one if we are ready to keep our minds open to every experience and influence that befalls a human.
