  1. I’ve been scouring the internet, checking out the blogs of poets and trying my best to hunt down the best books I can find (I am currently reading Christine Hamm’s Saints and Cannibals and it has floored me). Now, thanks to this review (and the cover, which I like a lot), Slaves to Do These Things is also going on the list.

    Congrats on the review!
