Reviews

"Organized as a three-part trial, the book articulates a timely political consciousness: one of war, fascism, and a 'not necessarily melancholy deactivation of will.'" -- "Publishers Weekly"
"Since long before 'disruption' became the buzzword du jour of the business world, Lyn Hejinian has been an active practitioner of a disruptive poetics, challenging and destabilizing the very corporate and political structures that now make claims about their own power to disrupt. Hejinian's most recent collection, composed of three long poems generated over the past decade, is both the product of a contemporary moment marked by national unrest and the global rise of fascism . . . . Here is a powerful, timeless entry into a lifelong body of work that sees within the building blocks of language a genuine potential for resistance . . . . This necessary volume identifies and fulfils our continuous and once again emergent need for radical destabilization in poetry and in politics, all the while insisting, with tenderness and optimism, that the act of reordering our world by reordering our language is what makes us--and keeps us--alive."-- "American Poets"
"Hejinian's new book is two parts surprise and one part what one might expect, but still disconcerting if not surprising."-- "The Hudson Review"
