 “Doug [Rice’s] words are always intimate, and always bring a raw or stung or visceral response. It takes a while to come back to yourself, sometimes, but when you do, you’re glad you’ve been.” —Rebecca Brown


“Where does desire become words? Under a new Sun of Melancholy placed in the sky by Doug Rice. … Rice names his companions in that valley: Bataille, Acker, Christ, Leduc, Goytisolo. He writes inside the turmoil of flesh, and uses the word Doug to nail his terror to the real.” —Robert Gluck
