Andrew Tonkovitch in the OC Weekly: "On the Other Side, Blue is a remarkable book...so thoughtfully,
carefully, whimsically and syntactically immersed in the color and apprehension and purposeful noticing of experience."
Jaqueline Kolosov in The Cincinnati Review: "On the Other Side, Blue disavows the possibility that faith can
create some convincing paradigm for understanding loss..."
Lori Wilson at Cerise Press: "Nogues gives us language for [the] world, where grief colors landscape and memory."
Ruth Williams at The Florida Review: "Nogues is a master at communicating the complexities of grief."
Advance praise from James McMichael: "Calling up what mortality underscores as irreplaceable, Nogues’ lines are models of intelligence, clarity and grace."
Advance praise from Michael Ryan: "These are moving poems, and they are moving because, through the intensity of their making, they make their emotions ours."
