The Plural of Some Things illuminates the subtle and poignant flashes of experience which shape the way we evolve and flourish and from time to time digress as human beings. Written with a probingly sensitive eye and a profound fervour for the natural world, The Plural of Some Things invites the reader to journey towards those encumbered truths embedded deep in the heart’s home.

*Desi Di Nardo’s energetic and exquisite poetry is already a major force, and a distinctive universal voice.       — Sheema Kalbasi
*If one is seeking poetry that is fresh and insightful, this little book of gems will not disappoint. Desi Di Nardo’s poems impress instantly. Each one offers a transforming look at a facet of seemingly ordinary experience. Desi is one of my favourite poets writing in Canada today.     — Denis Deneau
*How refreshing to find a writer so unabashedly poetic as Desi Di Nardo. In a world of politicized screeching and lament, one is reminded of Pablo Neruda’s definition of art as that which “gives people hope”. By that definition Di Nardo stands head and shoulders above the mob of academic sirens and macho wailers. A poetry to be thankful for.
— Pier Giorgio Di Cicco
