David Ferry must have had something up his sleeve when he called his book Strangers, because his is a poetry of intimacy and familiarity. More than that, Mr. Ferry's short, sparse lyrics are as perfectly and simply composed as Japanese haiku--a rare accomplishment in poetry written in English.--Andy Brumer, New York Times Book Review

Strangers is a remarkably good book for a reader sufficiently attentive to hear its quiet power, to let it work in its distinctive way.--Boston Globe

The poems of David Ferry's Strangers are in fact one book, and it is a splendid one. There is the same austere and poignant voice throughout, asking the unanswerable things, speaking of all that is withheld from us, confronting the unknownness that dwells even in the familiar and dear. Painful and touching, the book offers a distinctive vision which is at the same time inescapably true.--Richard Wilbur
