Buckeye captures a rare emotional authenticity and realism attained
by few authors .... the piece is a testament to Robert Buckeye’s ability
to craft a truly honest and powerfully real work of fiction.

Andy Stewart, on Left in Review of Contemporary Fiction

Robert Buckeye’s work—whether he deals with intimate or far-flung geography—has an edge to it, an incisive lyric toughness that’s
very much his own. The voice has pace, rhythm, force.

Nicholas Delbanco

Again, summations of the time the nation went off a cliff. And its
replay in micro and macro-cosms. One’s personal story mixed in with the impossibility of story, per se, but the way in which we look at the face of fate as well as the shadow cast by what that fate might be or have been.

At the center of Buckeye’s clear, direct prose is moral memory.
All his life, from Cleveland to Bratislava, he has been measuring the material world from the body out. It is this rare combination of moral memory and materialism that makes Buckeye’s writing so compelling.

Kenneth Warren

You may have to keep reminding yourself
it’s not poetry … because it is so surely lyrical,
so rich with imagery.
