What Readers Are Saying!

Damien Tillman’s debut book, Learning to Quote Myself, is a meticulously written, deeply personal collection of poems. Each poem is a uniquely thought-provoking revelation. While describing his coming-of-age journey, Tillman discovers his voice and ultimately learns the power of quoting wisdom and knowledge, especially his own. I believe Learning to Quote Myself by Damien Tillman entertains as well as educates. For a man of few words, Tillman’s poetry speaks volumes.
