'Peter Boyle’s poetic career is quite unlike that of any other Australian poet and Notes Towards the Dreambook of Endings is probably the most accomplished (a word critics should avoid) of his books and certainly the best introduction to his way of looking at the world and exploring its imperatives.' Martin Duwell, Australian Poetry Review

'...fascinating from the onset ... these three fierce Korean poets are readily accessible to the English-reading world, some of which is weary of nationalist vectors at home and increasingly open to previously marginalized voices abroad. These three Miraepa poets are breaking down borders.'
'The Asia Pacific Poetry Series is a major opportunity for readers to enter into the complexity of the emotional worlds of our surrounding region.'
‘Addictive poetry. This book heals and haunts. Real and unexpected. A stunning achievement.’
'...a new wild object, a declaration about how poetry can look and be.'
'This book is the business! Smart-mouthed, pussy-bowed. Pitch perfect filthy snippets of office lore and career advice.'
'Boyle explodes the physical and spiritual world around him as he is confronted with the end of life in the one he loves. In this deeply affecting work, he channels the pain and wonder of what it means to live and to be human in a transient world.'
'The collection bursts with jokes, wordplay, curious facts, and striking thoughts expressed with the evident delight of an unexpected discovery. Its vibrant and brilliantly angular poems are full of surprising rhythmic effects, their tone by turns playful, arch, knowing and amused.'
