"In his debut collection, The Buoyancy Of It All," says Laura van den Berg, author of What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us, "Robert Walker's dazzlingly acrobatic voice is on full display. These poems are vibrant and vital, and have gifted this reader with a world of images and ideas that have taken up permanent residence in the imagination. A brilliant, bold, and brave work from a gifted new writer." And Jeff Mann, author of Edge and On The Tongue, said, "I found myself grinning at the ballsy, bawdy, poignant, original, memorable nature of it all. Robert Walker's poetry is all of those things. It's also funny, flirtatious, moving, political, sexy, lively, and outrageous."
