John McCullough Unplugged at Café Atlantic - Waterloo Sampler 10 (2004)

McCullough adopts the age-old poetic habit of seeing the world in a grain of sand. Earnest and humorous, his poems scan his surroundings with sensitive precision. Emotion is controlled by intellect, but the effect is neither dry nor detached in this fine collecetion.
Gregory Woods

In his plotting of 'outer and earthly and inner space', John McCullough looks at our world from fresh and striking perspectives; myth, history and science are all lenses through which our view of the present is focussed and altered. Restless and inquiring, his collection never stands still, making surprising connections, sometimes within the space of a single line. By turns witty and tender, these poems balance the demands of heart and head beautifully. Highly recommended
Esther Morgan
