“Autobiomythography & Gallery is the best new book of poetry read by this reviewer this year. It is incredibly strong.”
– Coldfront Magazine
“Joe Pan’s stunning debut collection explores and collides the dual experiences of self and world in a language and music superbly calibrated. There is an authority of voice and a sweep of experience that graces each of these beautifully made poems.”
– Stuart Dischell
“Pan’s ambitious first collection shows its strength immediately. Narrative and pastiche combine to defy easy categories. I am especially moved by the series of poems entitled “Memory of the Body,” finding in each a living portrait of one cognizant and honest in the minutes of his life.”
– Claudia Keelan
“If consciousness is a stream, then this book is a stream flooded over, a whitewater of understanding and empathy. Inventive and eclectic.”
– J. C. Hallman
