Review of Arda Collins

Collins’ debut collection is a labyrinth of canny insights and domestic interiors which reveal the speaker’s elaborate methodologies of hiding and self-exposure. Caustic and pithy indeed, as Louise Glück praises in the foreword, but the persona herein often strikes the reader as more defenseless than arch.

Just ordered this book from Powells!

By the way--a glimpse of my pictures (and a glimpse is a lot, to warn you) from Bread Loaf are up on my "Independent Study" blog. I'll follow with a more complete set on Flickr.
