"Every Night They Dance is an imaginative and powerful book from a poet who has a characteristic gift of inhabiting the voices of ordinary people and the courage to write with an affirming, death-defying spirit. The first half of the book contains a range of dramatic and narrative poems, while the tone in the second half is intensely, personal, lyrical and elegiacal."--author website.
