"The title of the play . . . . comes from Nice Fish, one of the books of poetry written by Louis Jenkins."--Nice Fish newsletter, Spring, 2013, Guthrie Theater

"To imagine what it means to be another human being is an act of love. These are poems written by a great lover of the world. Everything in it that stands alone, unobserved, and luminous. Solitary people with their solitary destinies...If there's a native, archetypical American solitude, Louis Jenkins has given us its flavor."--Charles Simic, The Boston Review
