Brynne Barnes on Jessica Bozek

October 29, 2009

Check out the review of Jessica's The Bodyfeel Lexicon in the new issue of H_NGM_N!


Bozek’s rhythm is hypnotic, like a song one would sing to a child at night with half-mooned eyes; it is by way of lullaby that this poet awakens the reader to a wonderfully mismatched world of language and identity. The correspondence captured in letters written to and from Leon, her memory and self whisks the reader into a world of whimsy where identity becomes indiscernible.


I also reviewed one of our former Gatewood Prize finalists, Sandra Simonds' Warsaw Bikini (Bloof Books, 2008), in the same issue.
