Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. A certain slant lubricates the vision of Brian Young's second book of poems. Lines of verse veer top-speed around corners, producing unexpectedly lucid interrogations: "The sun,/ Then, in a brief// Case blown open,/ Appears. But who is/ Here to have it,/ 2Bang4?..." Anger is allowed in these poems, and disillusionment, and a general mistrust of landscape"--the natural world owned and used--all countered with the anodyne of an inebriate sensibility that loves the liquor in which it bathes, the language by which it collaborates. "I can co-locate here./ I won't digress, not with these/ Metal parts in the desert wind/ Not with a bank of clouds/ Stored on film." Brian Young's first book of poems was The Full Night in the Street Water (University of Nevada Press). He lives near St. Louis, Missouri.
