Alsop Review

Conjunctions: The names are legion, the artwork bleeding edge. Who are we talking about? Achebe, Berssenbrugge, Guy Davenport, William H. Gass, Susan Howe, Kelly, Lauterbach, Marcus, and of course, Morrow, for starters. As far as new and innovative writing goes, nothing can sur- pass the quality of Conjunctions. Check out their in-your-mind website. Sublime.

So Carlo Parcelli says, "But not all academic poets exploit the moderns for personal gain. There is the ubiquitous school of ‘perfesser’ poets variously known as the ‘Lawn Mower Poets’, the ‘Simpering Sonneteers’ or the ‘I-I-ME-ME-I-ME Advanced School of Navel Studies.’ Their only referent is his or her upper-middle class sentimentalized "personal crisis" . . . Who does this guy think he is??? Welcome to the frontier where the arts and politics clash. Sometimes a lively street market, sometimes a no-man's-land.

PBQness in the form of All-Night Hitchhike by Gary Fincke, Gontarek, Tioughnioga River Bottom, Kort and Chitwood, and Talk, Talk, Talk. The lovely, witty, chic and cheeky editors at PBQ do not limit the publication in terms of voice, school, or genre. My God, I'm in love with all three!

Voilá! Sol guys and dolls: Bradford Morrow, editor of Conjunctions and a patron saint of WDSol, has a new novel out called Giovanni's Gift. The Big Apple is all abuzz around the watercooler!

Mail the Editor, ok?
But don't complain about the music!
