Reviews

"Art installations dramatically enfold us, conveying a heightened sense of our world, but what if life itself were viewed as one large installation? . . . All of this yields, as one poem is titled, 'The Lived Experience of Social Power'--and in fact experience in general. Reading this book feels like living and breathing the life we live and breathe, and Carr manages to make it all compulsively readable. VERDICT: Sharp social and political observation from a poet who does it right."--Library Journal's Best Fall Poetry Titles
