Carmine Starnino on the Pangborn Defence

Over at the Vehicule Press blog, Carmine Starnino has posted on our very own Pangborn Defence. You can read his post here. The most important bit, of course, is the praise: Framed as a series of verse-letters to various friends, Pangborn Defense is one of his best collections to date. Rollicking and linguistically unrelenting, the poems are full of strong feelings and sharp observations ("Hobbyists of the pleasures, part-time ingenues, / These women on a Sunday, paunchy and pasty, / go for broke, bedenimed, high-heeled").
