Praise for The Man Who Saws Us in Half
“In this sterling poetry collection, Houchin traces how the innocence of childhood is often erased by the cares of everyday life as one ages. His poems, with motifs of dogs, crains, and birds, offer an aching call to see the world anew.”—Appalachian Heritage
“Readers searching for free verse that does not aim to be edgy and instead works toward honesty and discovery will appreciate Houchin’s craft. . . . Ron Houchin . . . does have something important to say about this strange world that we live in, and, most of the time, he succeeds in saying it.”—Birmingham Poetry Review
