Umbrellas Or ElsePraise for Umbrellas or Else:

“J Diego Frey’s poems are written with a love for language and a freshness of voice that’s tough to beat.”

–Michael J. Henry, author of  Active Gods and No Stranger Than My Own

“…when I pick up J Diego Frey’s work, laughter and tears come in waves and I recognize appreciation comes in a purer form–the immediacy of emotion that fresh and original poems stir in the reader.”

–Chris Ransick, former Denver Poet Laureate and author of Language for the Living and the Dead and Never Summer: Poems from Thin Air

J Diego Frey is a product of suburban Colorado in the 1970s and an admirer of cheeseburgers. His poetry follows naturally from this. Umbrellas or Else is JD’s first collection of poems. The title of the book was suggested to the poet by his father long before any of these poems were written, but somehow, it fits.
