A Review of my Pamphlet in Blackbox Manifold

A review of my ‘experimental’ pamphlet of poems,
The Backlists
appeared the other day in Blackbox Manifold
a very fine ‘e-zine’, if that’s the right word.
It’s academically formidable and I’m really proud to be involved.
Other writers in this issue include Carrie Etter, Roy Fisher and Kate Kilalea.
A couple of choice cuts from the review >
“a finely comic invitation to voyage across language surfaces and global experience”
“there is so much driving along here: this is just such juicy work…”
The Backlists is also available here.
