A bit of love for Kenneth Leslie

This appears to have been out for a while, but I just stumbled upon it now. The Midwest Book Review has published a warm little blurb about The Essential Kenneth Leslie. The page it's on is ridiculously long, so I'll just reproduce the review here:

The Essential Kenneth Leslie
Zachariah Wells, editor
The Porcupine's Quill
68 Main St., Erin, Ontario, N0B IT0
9780889843288, $14.95,

Passion is something that can be felt through text. "The Essential Kenneth Leslie" is a collection of the man's work compiled by fellow poet Zachariah Wells. Kenneth Leslie's prime was decades ago, but his work still holds up well today, providing much insight and thought from his time to today. "The Essential Kenneth Leslie" is a treasure trove of poetry, highly recommended. "Success": There was a dream;/he fulfilled it./There was a wish;/it came true./There was a fire;/and he killed it./There was a spark;/and it flew!
