I received in the mail yesterday, Peter Gizzi's Some Values of Landscape and Weather just out on Wesleyan.
Ok. So it's obvious that Pete has had an enormous influence on my writing and that reading his work just tickles me pink but this is awesome. I read through the whole thing last night. I'd already read a significant portion of the book, being that I published its last section "Song" as Fin Amor and have the chapbooks Add This To The House and Revival, BUT seeing this work in one collection makes it new and exciting. This is my favorite book of the year so far. Well...except for The Frequencies and Deer Head Nation. Will write more on it later.
