I recently read two books I like a lot, for totally different reasons: K. Silem Mohammad's Breathalyzer (Edge) and Amy England's Victory and Her Opposties: A Guide (Tupelo). Am I allowed to do this? I doubt either writer has read the other's book, or if so, what s/he thinks of it, but I expect the former would seem overly dadist to the latter, and the latter overly sententious to the former. As for me, I'm totally naive re: the subject of transnational capital, so it doesn't matter, I guess. I esp. like those M. poems where the leavings of googlism clump together in a manner that gets at something in the medula oblongata of the age - or at least has an emotional charge. E.'s book is a great meditation on imagination and the non-recovery of the past - a great example of "experimental nonfiction," too.
