Here’s an excerpt from Julie Demoff-Larson’s review:
Addicts & Basements demonstrates Robert Vaughan’s versatility as a writer, showing mastery in technique as the collection moves freely from poetry to prose. This eclectic collection is divided into three parts that sometimes captures raw human condition, and at times is profound in its subtlety. Imagery and a knack for storytelling are strong here, but what makes Vaughan’s collection so great is that his voice is not gender specific (well, “Hey, Lady” is pretty gender specific). I can relate to his work from all points of view, and when the narrator is female there is never a doubt. Vaughan pulls this collection off with wild imagination that from what I suspect is from pure personal experience.
