“Webb’s poems deserve the visibility and careful reading [this new volume] will give them. ‘Shadow Ball’ presents a complex sensibility in poems as deep as they are clear. . . .Webb’s chief rhetorical mode in all his work is hyperbole. Fertility of invention is his main characteristic . . . Excess and  strangeness vivify his verbal imagination.”
—Michigan Quarterly Review

“Shows us the full and hearty scope of human experience, shaped by music and keen perception, all through poems that are carefully crafted for sound, pacing and metaphor. ‘Shadow Ball’ illuminates the range of Webb’s strange talent, a talent rooted, perhaps, in his background as a rock musician and psychotherapist, which makes him particularly skilled at capturing the small moments, the cadence and power of ordinary revelations, the drama, melodrama, tragicomedy and music in the life of Everyman, himself included.”

“Webb’s poetry, while comic, is full of a poignant sense of the evanescence of things, for Webb is a great noticer. . . .Read this collection and be entertained.”
—Main Street Rag
