...from Eric Mader-Lin (Eric Mader), an American in Taiwan, September 26, 2009

“Fast-moving and deep”

“[Porter’s] sentences tend to be short, pugilistic even, but there is a concrete depth of reference, at times a great lyricism, at others pathos, at others a learned shortland. Spirit Book Word reads quickly, in a conversational manner, and yet it reaches great depths…Porter has the odd persuasive power of a man speaking directly to you, willing to tell you straight out what matters most to him…”
