A Bernadette Mayer Reader (Reprint)
Bernadette Mayer (Author)
DescriptionWhat a clear, insistent health there is here as if the so-called world were seriously the point, which it is, and we could actually live in it, which we do. Truly this is the best How To book I've read in years. Bernadette Mayer makes a various world of real people in real times and places, a fact of love and loving use. She has impeccable insight and humor. She is a consummate poet no matter what s for supper or who eats it. Would that all genius were as generous. Robert Creeley"
