Synopses & Reviews
Poetry. "Numbers slide promiscuously around in these poems, emboldening the fundamental ways in which we have relations with counting (accounting for): bodies, monies, words, selves. Kalleberg's work embodies a science of many, and the indivisible hangs out in it, too, as fabulous, energetic, funny and full of pathos as Cesar Vallejo, hitting us in our pecuniary pocket, if the wallet were a thing we wore on our hearts"--Eleni Sikelianos.
