Julie Carr
100 Notes on Violence

yes I entered this too!

[and I lost a peter jay shippy early book today -- think I accidentally dumped it in library returns -- lord knows they would never shelve it!!!]

I perused this and was blown away by the bio and the poems. The poems and the bio. Things I should have been doing and writing, but didn't. Then I read A Review, and it seemed All Wrong. Tonight I am reading _Testimony_ in spurts thru a review. It is a favorite work/author, but also -- in a way that testimony is the lietmotif and violence omnipresent, I've looking for the relief in Carr.

What I get flipping back now, packing to go to a wedding, is voice + testimony -- not what I wanted, but I think it is good voice...
