Book Reviews

Playing Those Mind Games

Louise in Love
by Mary Jo Bang  

"The story is of a woman who falls in love, falls out, attempts suicide,
and survives. At the end of the book, she is, I believe, old. I say 'believe'
because one cannot be entirely sure in this story what has happened."

Death by Repitition

Black Series
by Laurie Sheck  

"What begins as a book of magnetic poems, in which the soul is pitted
against the world of technology, ends up feeling like a magnetic poetry set."

Subterranean Magic

Ultima Thule
by David McCombs  

"Performing such magic requires a visible stage, a clear before
and after, and the invisible, smooth process of transformation itself.
Mr. McCombs has carefully attended to all these."
