Reviews

"You'll likely find Thea Brown's collection Loner Forensics shelved under poetry, but this book is something all its own: lyric noir, speculative elegy, private procedural. A story told through story's negation ('The city is not a story'), here we feel we might glimpse Schrödinger's cat gone stray, living out one of its lives off alley scraps in the intimate estrangement of the metropolis. While the chorus of voices builds a litany of delightfully dubious testimony out of postmodern materials--fragments of the attention economy, consumer culture, and so on--place (as in any good Gothic) is a crucial character as well: dangerous, endangered, and indelible. Alongside Brown and her Detective, we search for truth in the trappings, asking the big questions, like, well, 'What was the question?'" --Dora Malech, author of Flourish
