Default Mary Meriam Review

Hello folks!

My review of Mary's wonderful new book has been published in Entropy. They Americanised my spelling but I'm preparing myself to forgive them. Yaay!

Mary - you're more than welcome. This is the first review I've written, apart from all the ones I daydream in my head for my favourite films and albums and books (does anyone else do this?) so it's a thrill that it was published and a privilege that it was for your poetry.

Nemo and Susan - thank you!

Congratulations to all!

Mark, think of the ink saved, and thus the carbon footprint reduced, by Americanising (sic) you English! ~,:^)

I lapped this up, Mark. To my mind, good literary criticism makes me appreciate the discussed work all the more; this being no exception. Respect!

Great review Mark. Congratulations Mary.
You say at the outset that Mary's poems puts the reader in a place that "is and it isnít." The exhilarating effect of that dichotomy puts me in a place of great pleasure. I bought the book today.
