"Time-Bound offers poetry for grown-ups, who face unblinkingly the world as it is and do so with existential courage. By heeding Voltaire’s advice to keep singing in the lifeboat after the shipwreck, Brown creates for us, his fellow passengers, a varied and memorable music that makes its own waves."
