QUOTES ABOUT ERIK LA PRADE
“Erik La Prade became one of my favorite poets after I read ‘An Erotic Memory of New York in the 1980s,’ a masterful recounting of a holiday encounter in Manhattan. La Prade’s observations are insightful, colorful, and profound. He is a stand-out talent recording expressions of life and love, both in and out of the big city.” — Dan Kadison, founder, NewsWhistle.com
” Erik La Prade tries hard to write ordinary poems. He doesn’t succeed. During the quotidian day, light and the miraculous shine thru the cracks.” — Harry Nudel, writer/poet
“In his ability to render the gritty landscape of his own most private insights and obsessions with haunting lyrical exactness, Erik La Prade belongs to a pantheon of streetwise versifies, alongside Frank O’Hara, Delmore Schwartz, Charles Reznikoff, Steve Dalachinsky, and Harry Nudel.” — Alan Kaufman, editor, The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry
