Richard Wollman's Changeable Gods, winner of the Elyse Wolf Prize, is a beautiful letterpress edition chapbook from Slate Roof Press. 

With echoes of Rilke's sonnets, Changeable Gods compels the reader through a sequence of beautifully imagistic love poems, in which the changing hues of early morning and the gods themselves emerge and recede, only to reemerge under the poet's painterly eye.

"In this remarkable book, Wollman uses clear and lyrical human speech to create a sequence of poems at once complex and intimate. The gods he speaks of do not always inspire trust, but do, however, inspire lyric poetry of sheer beauty....[When] the gods take flight and the poet is thrown back upon himself, he has that self to fall back on....deeply changed by having participated in the creation of days...." — Alfred Nicol
