Staff Reviews


I ask myself "where to start" this staff pick, a question that Cam Scott can't possibly have asked himself, or else he never would've. This collection is so expansive in so few pages, a Canadian reviewer wrote that fluency in Italian is required to comprehend the effort (even though not a word of Italian appears in the book). Outrageous hall-of-mirror footnotes & turns of phrase hint at the cagematch of intimacies flitting through tentacular global capital, or vice versa. Clever and quadruple distilled. Form is the intermediary for a work about form as intermediary. Vehicle/tenor and crepuscular/vascular are made interchangeable. A soft flight on an enormous airship with private quarters. Poetry read of the year!
