Except from book review published on Berkshire Fine Arts:
"Even though Evocations was published some fourteen years ago it is fresh, stunning, and remarkable. The inscription of to a gonzo from a gonzo (paraphrased) was deeply moving.
"It has encouraged me to think in what sense we share the sobriquet of gonzology.
"On many levels I have regarded [Chiarenza] as a rock-steady, grounding influence on my own peripatetic, far flung, disorienting odyssey of a life in the arts. There has always been something reassuring about his paternalistic scolding, when called for, and mentoring encouragement to follow my own muse."
