"A bemused, stoop-shouldered figure who is more than a mere speaker -- let's call him a protagonist -- stalks the poems of Falling to Earth. With candor and an almost grandiose simplicity, Hansen describes the limitations of his middle-aged body and, in so doing, the limitations of his enterprise in mid-life: the gracelessness of survival. Falling to Earth is the journey of a vibrant soul refreshing itself poem by poem."
- Molly Peacock, from her foreword
