misplaced things cover“Rosenthal sets his carefully chosen words in the silver chains of his lines, and the effect is lapidary.”                                       — Timothy Murphy

“David Rosenthal’s The Wild Geography of Misplaced Things takes us beyond the established borders of our ordinary lives into memory and its defiance of time, a place where things that may have been misplaced suddenly reappear and reveal their true nature, until we realize that nothing in Rosenthal’s world that truly matters is misplaced or forgotten.”                                                               — Lynne Knight

“How lucky David Rosenthal’s students are! They have a teacher whose perception of the physical world is as fresh, genuine and immediate as their own, whose language is as bravely, unashamedly direct, and whose desire to play — with words, images, ideas, experiences and things — is apparently as inexhaustible.”                                   — Rhina P. Espaillat
