Katrovas's second collection is a strong and exciting one, animated by ``the sweet-sick knowledge/ of righteous anger turned absurd.'' This double-edged voice, anger balanced by self-awareness, and an imagination attracted to the homeless and the outcast (to that ``power born to a lack of power'') distinguish these poems. Pimps, night stalkers, drunks, hermaphrodites, and bag ladies lead him down the back alleys and spiritual wastelands of New Orleans, where he can take stock of his adopted city and reconcile himself to his past, discussed elsewhere with less immediate impact in other ``dialogues with Self.'' His best poems have a sense of urgency and emotional honesty about them: ``And time felt cools knowing down to nothing.'' Recommended.Robert Hudzik, P.L. of Cincinnati & Hamilton Cty.
