By Méira Cook
A attention-grabbing, ambling, loitering secret tale in verse, a whoizzit instead of a whodunit.
In this cutting edge and arresting narrative poem, Méira Cook's walker, a tender girl, is a personality being written via an "old urban poet," who's in flip being written by way of one other poet, for whom the younger girl, "Ms. Em Cook," has been an amanuensis. consistently witty and sometimes hilarious, feather-light involved, the publication is an wonderful exploration of significant matters: early life and age; lifestyles, dying and rebirth; the (dis)connection of language and fact; culture and the now. it really is an assemblage of 7 nesting sections, every one of them a kind of chapbook chatting with all of the others and rounding out a protracted poem of serious freshness. A Walker within the urban is different, essentially the most unique books Brick has ever published.
