Falk's work seamlessly bridges poetic landscapes often thought at odds: free verse and narrative, the confessional and the sociopolitical, the interrogative sensibility of the avant-gardist and the musical ear of the of the lyricist. Crazy Jane sings to us while simultaneously disrupting the flow; the poems...manage to dislodge us from complacency, not through an outer violence, but through a quiet, though raging, inner sense of desperation. Such urgency is difficult to capture, and Falk does so. A truly unique and honest voice in American poetry.
