Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. "Thomas Patrick Levy's poems evoke a darkly lit American otherworld filled with withering cornstalks, rusted tractors and pulsating shadows. The narrator of these poems is an amorphous Nowhere Man, one whose desperation and longing crystallize in passionate non sequiturs and moments of heartrending tenderness, often towards an equally shadowy female presence. Reading proliferation of ingenious sentences in I Don't Mind If You're Feeling Alone is a singular experience that is as haunting as it is touching." — Ben Mirov

"These pieces fold in on themselves, light but sharp and sensual too; sexy little papercuts from the inside of an origami box." — Amelia Gray

Review:

"The intensity of this staring creates echoes of both pain and ecstasy that flood and layer the text, water that gets sopped into the long brown carpet I sometimes imagined the voices of the book standing on. This is why this book gives us so many poems, and why when the speakers do speak, their words are done up in capitals. The spoken bits cut through all the good and bad fats of the imagination and the mind. Their bigness represents exactly how much it takes to try and speak to each other, how much it could mean if the voice did fail." Carrie Lorig, HTML Giant
