"Adrian Louis's poetry is the half-breed howl and fully electric song of Indian country. I memorize and recite his poems in the same way that white college professors memorize and recite Yeats and Keats. Read these poems and listen carefully, sweetheart, because there's a Paiute boy slouching toward Bethlehem." --Sherman Alexie, author of Indian Killer

"Mr. Louis is one of the few poets working in the United States of whom I would be brave enough to say is endowed with what Lorca called Duende. That rare, single, solitary, and powerful entity that makes of his poems masterpieces because they cut straight to the heart." --Virgil Suárez, author of Palm Crows

"Bone & Juice extends the already considerable accomplishments of a poet I have admired for years--for his unforced ironic humor in the face of historical tragedy, for his unshakable courage, and for his wisdom. His vision and his voice are unique." --Sam Hamill, author of Gratitude
