Whittled-down reviews

By Harriet Staff

In the spirit of brevity, let’s make this snappy: poets D.A. Powell and Randall Mann were sick of reading puffy, long-winded reviews. They started a project called The One Sentence Review that never really got off the ground, but they didn’t want the brilliant mini-critiques to go to waste.  The reviews are now collected online, and reading them feels like eating a snacks for your brain. Devour them at the Michigan Quarterly Review,

A few tastes:

The Lichtenberg Figures by Ben Lerner

Clever, fragmented, bloggish, contemporary, brilliant, sloppy, sonnets?

—Craig Morgan Teicher

Where Shall I Wander by John Ashbery

Where Shall I Wander is a 96-page victory lap.

—Matthew Yaeger

Hip Pocket Lexicon: An Anthology of New Older Poets

Hip Pocket Lexicon: An Anthology of New Older Poets will be a welcome addition to the shelf of your local used book store.

—Matthew Zapruder & Joshua Beckman
