There's a review of Starsdown in this month's issue of The Believer. Thanks to Stephen Burt for the generous read! He also wrote a note about the book here.


I'm not writing much here lately, as is obvious, because I'm deep in the dizzying bookpile that is my reward this year, studying for my qualifying exams in May. There's nothing like reading as much as I can of literary product from the last two centuries (American, mostly) to induce a sort of aphasia, or convince that there's very little that can't be said better with the backspace key. I'm sure I'll figure out some enabling delusion soon, and then I'll be back. But probably very little until summer.

congrats on the review JB, that's nice to see. "Jumpy," "ADHD poems" is curious: maybe Burt was drinking a lot of coffee whilst reading the book?
