Bob Hicok's poetry caught me in the Believer magazine and the New Yorker. It was really arresting. So I was looking forward to reading a book of it. And this was more staid than I was expecting. But I'm thinking maybe this is earlier work, because there are hints of Things To Come.

Not that this is a terrible collection. Just that these poems sit on the page and wait to be read and my favorites of his rush along and carry you with them.
