Press & Reviews

“I hear Whitman in the poems in Snowmen Losing Weight. But there’s more than a yawping echo here, there’s this huge tenderness and intellect that allows us to see “faces beautifully obscene in the sun,” a party’s worth of strangeness and play, and a lingering darkness.”
– Nick Sturm at Coldfront Magazine

“Everyone wants Snowmen Losing Weight, I know. And I do mean to share my enthusiasm for this book with you. I want to give it to you, like an ice cream cone on the street in the middle of a rapidly warming day. I want you to feel the cloud of a snowman on your tongue. But mostly I want you to read these poems and be double-taken by them.”
– Jake Adam York at Kenyon Review

“I see so much urgent seeing in these poems, seeing that wrestles between its desire to share itself and its confusion about whether to share itself with what it sees or into one special other set of eyes.”
– Mike Young at HTML Giant

“Whether “vanity plates from Michigan,” soda machines filled with Mountain Dew, or stoned teenagers munching on potato chips purchased from a gas station, Falck’s poems orient readers within a blue-collar, American universe that reminds one of settings popularized by singers of the 80s, such as John Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen.”
– Joshua Ware, author of Homage to Homage to Homage to Creeley

“Noah Falck’s world is both the world I live in, and the world I wished I lived in. And maybe, that’s what’s most beautiful about Snowmen, that it brings those two a little closer together while still recognizing the essential difference between them.”
Vouched Books

Snowmen Losing Weight may be one of the best-designed poetry books I’ve ever seen and the poems contained therein are equally badass.”
–Ryan Ridge, author of Hunters & Gamblers
