"Matthew Thorburn's poems chronicle both what we think we're looking for and how we look—a bittersweet journey that underscores our inability to stay, or be, in any one place for more than its moment, thus engaging what it means to be here at all."
"This Time Tomorrow contains some of the best travel poems being written today. In vivid and surprising accounts of his travels, Thorburn's eye for particulars never lets him down. He is a master of simultaneous action and perception.... Thorburn is smart, alert and always good company on the road."
"In a voice that is inventive, natural, honest and always clear, Matthew Thorburn has given us an exciting extended meditation on what it means to study the ever-surprising geography of one's own mind."
