Synopses & Reviews
Poetry. "Culture's cloud chamber and its millions of random vectors drive Aaron Anstett's INSOFAR AS HERETOFORE. 'Whatever scintillants' he calls them in 'One Theory,' an exclamation that's half- prayer and half come-and-get-me bravado. The poems catch our socio- linguistic lightning flashes, at times fusing the erotic and the spiritual. This book is original and beautiful."—Michael Heller
