Recent Reviews of The Right Place to Jump

Huffington Post, Sept. 2012 - "There are poems that seem to place him, to my mind, in the upper stratosphere of our small poetry world."

The Rumpus, March 2013 - "This is a book that is far-reaching in every way that matters — Covino is unafraid to be here formal, there experimental, here precise and there abstract."

Lambda Literary, May 2013 - "It is a swift wit which jumps off the page without a safety net, landing freshly far afield."

The Volta, Editor's Pick, 2013

Fogged Clarity, June 2014 - "Covino masterfully tracks the emotion of the speaker's voice; each poem, propels forward the inhabiting minute... He is profane, profound, and cleansing. Perhaps there is a little of James Bond in him."
