"More Space than Anyone Can Stand presents the reader with voices and scenes so authentically American that reading these we feel a sense of privilege and celebration. Bill Notter knows the dark side of our violences, our lusts, our stupidities, but he knows as well what makes us the industrious committed souls we are as well. A collection of portraits, yes, but the true characters are the landscapes of the Nebraska sandhills, the grasslands of the Plains, the Mississippi Delta, Arizona, and the West. These poems don't so much lift off the page as they burrow in to trouble us in the best sense, so we don't forget to question who we are as a people, and, for those of us who write, what it means to be an American poet." —Gray Jacobik, Series Judge
