Praise for Living Weapon
"Over and again, Phillips strives--within his own poems--to chip away at an explicit definition of what exactly we mean when we say 'poetry' . . . Throughout the collection, Rowan Ricardo Phillips refuses to abandon the past; instead, he interrogates its ghosts--in all their terrible admixture of violence and beauty--and, despite every reason not to, he sings." --Will Brewbaker, Los Angeles Review of Books

"In his dazzling third collection, Phillips (Heaven) explores social ills while celebrating poetry's ability to provide solace and sense during times of upheaval . . . Phillips's latest is lyrical, imaginative, and steeped in a keen understanding of current events." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The truths of Phillips's book are plain and perceptive, harsh and oddly soothing." --Nick Ripatrazone, The Millions
