What are people saying about Almost Somebody?

"In Almost Somebody, Daniel Roessler presents the fringes of the world in which we live. Day laborers, street walkers, messed up parents, and crazed minds wander through this collection along with a narrator who sees possibilities while recording the potential that so often falls short. Almost Somebody gives voice to those who were almost somebody and does so with grace." —Robert Lee Brewer, author of Solving the World's Problems and editor of Poet's Market

Daniel Roessler's Almost Somebody is an accomplished collection of poems that move back and forth between heartfelt, personal reflections on his own life, and vividly-drawn persona poems and character studies. As he says in his homage poem to John Steinbeck, " ...each of us is a part of someone else/ and they in turn are a part of us..." Straightforward, sincere, and rich with metaphor, this is poetry that the reader will find accessible and satisfying. - Bruce W. Niedt, author of Breathing Out and Twenty-four by Fourteen
