"[Manning is] the literary guardian of a way of life he feels is vanishing from small-town Kentucky and America... ["The Gone and the Going Away"] maintains his fidelity to rural themes, recapturing a lost world for readers to remember and preserve....Although Manning has been lauded throughout the country for his work -- garnering accolades from some of the major poets of our time, like W.S. Merwin, in addition to the numerous awards he has received -- he has found his place in this literary life, wearing it now as effortlessly as the patterned chambray shirts he favors. He is a man of the people, intent on bringing poetry and scenes of rural beauty to them, words of the past, but also the present -- the poetry of preservation, of all of us."--Jason Howard, Leo Weekly

"I'm no smarty-pants about poetry, but I do like words and I like good folks. It took just two lines into the opening poem in Maurice Manning's collection called The Gone and the Going Away, and I knew I was headed for some good words about interesting folks. . .This collection is a world I expect to dip into regularly."--Julie Isgrigg, Indie Fresh Press
