Review on Someone’s Utopia–and the rest

Fitz Fitzgerald recently published a review of my latest book Someone’s Utopia and the rest of my book-works. This is the first retrospective of my first decade of work (2008-2018). That is an insane sentence to type, to have been able to publish that long.

It’s rare to be taken seriously and reviews are often the most thankless work. It’s rarer to be reviewed by someone who has written work you love. So I’m bowled over by Fitz’ extended, luminous attention.

Here’s Fitz on tumblr. If you can, find a way to read his manuscript Cartography, esp the poem “Triage Shirtwaist Fire.”
