“Louis Gallo is an astute observer, who auspiciously employs poetry as a vehicle to portray the manifold nature of the world he is capable to grasp with all his senses, taking the readers along on his sensory ventures. In Clearing the Attic, this prolific and energetic poet again proves he excels in his honest and masterful approach to longer forms.” – Kristina Kočan, Poet (Šara, 2008; Kolesa in murve, 2014; Šivje, 2018) Slovenia
