The Orchid Keeper is Paul Perry’s  much-anticipated second collection of poems, confirming the promise of his first, praised by Fred D’Aguiar among others: “Each poem bristles with life and longing, intelligence and wit. These are lines and stanzas and poems that signal wisdom beyond his youth. In this sense he is a prodigiously gifted poet.”

“Like W.S. Merwin, Mr. Perry seems to have a unique talent for closing lines that open numerous possibilities of meaning while suggesting something absolute, such as fate in this case … Throughout the collection, there are multiple examples of dazzling, sonorous lines that demonstrate an impressive understanding of the contours and rhythms of the language.” — Ward 6 Review
