Wiggerman's poems are like depth charges shot into the churning seas of the cultural wa; some explode softly and deceptively near the surface; others plunge deep, sending seismic shock waves through complacent souls too long sleeping in the mud of declension; all are well crafted implements of personal and political disruption.
Ric Williams, Austin Chronicle
This latest volume from the distinguished young Texas writer and editor Scott Wiggerman, who has been recognized and honored by the Austin Writers' League, the Poetry Society of Texas, and Houston Poetry Fest 98, further establishes his place in the Texas literary scene. His vigorous poems alternately charm, touch, astonish, and amuse the reader. He has developed a distinctive voice -- a goal of all of us who write -- and his freshness and candor are rare. Hats off to Wiggerman, one of Texas' rising literary stars!
Robert Clark, Director, Houston Poetry Festival
These well-wrought poems emerge from the physical garden of today and now. They are like the food of contemporary America in their wide range that satisfies the palate. From painful moments of childhood to silky erotica to delightful bursts of humor, Scott Wiggerman's faith in the power of human love and caring prevails to make Vegetables and Other Relationships a true feast.
