'"The Sound of a Solitary Leaf,' from Grove's Seventh Sense: Green Darkness, finely articulates the power of voice and the writers' essential purpose--to find and create meaning...to give despair its lustre--the manifestation of hope. A compendium of prose, poetry, short stories, and photographs, 'Ashened Rapture' trunders and whispers the pathos of the human condition. Poignant. Wholly original and intensely personal yet universally imbued."
[Regarding Grove's short story, 'The Blue Line,] "I am fascinated by the oblique narrative technique, as well as the curious parallels...it may be just a dream, but I feel...I've read something beautiful." -Nick Taylor, Professor of English and Comparative Literature, San Jose State University; Author of 'The Disagreement.'
