Grady Harp, a top ten reviewer on Amazon and author of War Songs, was kind enough to review Pear Slip:
Matthew Hittinger is an artist. He is able to paint with words intimate still lifes focused on one object – a pear – and make each of the eight poems in this small but treasurable book an experience the reader will use as a pause to enjoy, yes, but to also become more acutely attuned to the simple things in our lives that deserve our attention.

More about Grady: War Songs is a collection of poems written by Dr Grady Harp while serving as a Battalion Surgeon with the USMC in Vietnam 1968-69. Some 25 years after the poems were written Harp collaborated with clay artist Stephen Freedman to make the written poems visual in the form of sculpted, metaphorical clay vessels. This book is a catalogue which traveled with that exhibition.
