Critical reception[edit]

Of his debut book, "The Late Parade"', David Kirby wrote in The New York Times Book Review wrote: "There are plenty of poets who are word-drunk and plenty of others who slap down allusions faster than a blackjack dealer. But I can’t think of anyone today who is dealing in both currencies as fluidly as Fitzgerald. The result is a poetry as lush as any of Keats’s odes, as textured as a corridor in the Louvre."[5]
