Reviews - What do customers think about Bridge and Tunnel?

Poetry for the Occasional and the Obsessional Poetry Reader  Feb 3, 2008
In this first book, "Bridge and Tunnel" John Hennessy's rich language takes us through the industrial landscape of New Jersey with humor, heart, and a sharp eye. He introduces us to the neighborhood, the times, and to the local characters, "Mike Devlin"and "Dr. Swann".

Even when we meet bullies and abusers, Hennessy never strays into bathos or hysteria. For instance in, "How the Dog-Star Got His Name," he keeps an even tone,a matter-of-fact voice as the poem balances a mixture of pity, rage, confusion, and revenge. Here Hennessy uses every word to work out the complex truths he finds in the experience.

The poems in "Bridge and Tunnel" are energetic, accessible, wise, interesting, and original. In this collection the poems build on and interact with each other in a way that cannot be captured except by reading the whole book.
check out page 42!  Mar 30, 2007
I haven't had a chance to digest this entire amazing volume of delicious poetry yet, and am literally chewing it one word at a time. MY DATE WITH SATAN is what made me want to buy this book and what a juicy little vignette it is. Women will LOVE this. FREE UNION is another poem to savor, again one that will appeal deeply to women.
This is a down to earth, EARTHY voice about life on earth - not about the etheral or spiritual in the least.
