“Like the music of an opera, Music from Words poetic words have an intensity which evokes emotions and feelings from the reader. . .His syntax, use of enjambment, and language all flow together in almost a musical way, as if John Cage wrote the piece, because technically there is no music heard out loud, or is there? Jampole’s style of writing triggers either powerful enjoyment or severe sadness and disillusionment, even fear and anger.” – Pam Rosenblatt, Wilderness House Literary Review.
