Here is a book glistening with the luminous fragments of a sharply observed world. The poems in this collection hum with precious nouns, gathered by a mind that gifts us language in lieu of standard... More > commodities. Here is a book that gives us a chance to consume beauty, to ingest wonder. mclennan makes poems that "would coax entire spectrums" of thought, that lavish us with a tumble of images, sounds, philosophy. Read this book if you want to be spellbound: his is a kaleidoscopic vision that reveals something new, something dazzling, at every turn.
