"The poetry of Horace Coleman is sharp and uncompromising--but invincibly warm, as well."
"Horace Coleman's In The Grass is a book of darkness and revelation. Here are poems filled with ammunition that penetrate not flesh but soul. Coleman's memories of Vietnam are not war stories--instead they capture moments when blackness is the battlefield. This is a book for careful readers."
----E. Ethelbert Miller, Director, African-American Resource Center, Howard University
----Vince Gotera, author of Radical Visions: Poetry by Vietnam Veterans
