A review and an interview and a monkey

bold-monkeyA new review of The Ship Is Sinking appeared this week. I even answered a few interview questions about it.

George Anderson of Bold Monkey spent some time with the book and wrote a rather intelligent, thoughtful analysis. I’d quote from it here but you should just go check it out. The review includes a number of excerpts from the book, as well as one complete poem that I don’t believe has appeared elsewhere online.

Anderson’s review is followed by a short interview he did with me. I answered some questions regarding the book’s genesis and my general approach to writing. I almost sound like I know what I’m talking about. Almost.

Take a look!

HP’s editor, Paul Agostino, read the book and emailed me about it, then gussied up his note through the magic of editing, and now it’s a review.

He talks about the “dark ride” the book takes, and he provides a couple excerpted poems. It’s a really thorough, insightful read. This may be one of those times when the review is better-written than the thing it’s reviewing.

In any event, I’m damn grateful for the support.
