Praise for Nudes of God

About the Book
Somewhere between Our Lady and Lolita, Barfoot’s nudes are luminous. A rich vein of humor, often bawdy, plays about these poems, and this surprises and pleases us. The variety of Nudes in amazing, and the seeming ease of execution belies the careful craftsmanship in every line.
The Nudes of God challenges, confounds, amuses, offends, and inspires. An utterly original book, it grabs out attention like a jolt of electricity and never lets go.
In The Nudes of God the body and soul are one. Sometimes that is a great gift, and sometimes it is a great burden. James Barfoot explores both with intelligence, verve, and wit. These are earthy, ecstatic poems.
