Double Venus Review at Eclectica

Kevin McGowin has written a very kind response to Double Venus at Many thanks to him for the time and interest. Here's a meta-blurb:

"With exceptions ("The Shipwreck of the Singular"), the volume's most riveting passages do not have conventional "titles" as such—though the one I've just named is one of my favorites—but rather sequences of bracketed numbers followed by phrases. This reinforces the continuum and continuity of the imagery and rushing verbiage with its focus on the verb itself, and palpably identifiable objects, persons, and events stand alone between the surround-sound of this teeming biological imperative, for in Double Venus this is exactly what language itself becomes."
