‘In these spare, nightmarish theatrescapes, Ball directs our ‘impossible dreams’ by blurring the script between actor and audience, the real and the staged, the lived and the dreamed, the self and the other … At times reading more as horror-film treatments than prose poems (no doubt Ball’s intention),Clockfire finds its strength in irony.’

– Winnipeg Free Press

‘[Ball is] one of our most exciting young poets.’ – Robert Kroetsch, author of The Studhorse Man
