The neo-beat poetry from an outsider at its best. Rarely a non-native speaker enriches written and spoken word in such a causal and exciting way as the Slovak-born poet Gabriel A. Levicky who is also known under his art pen name as GabLev (cartoons, assemblages and ´gablevages´). This book indirectly follows a path of his previous samzidat-published books back in the hard-line neo-Stalinist country (since then free) in the 70´s as well as the one done in the USA, his new home since 1979. A must for any modern poetry lover. Czech it out!

Who reads the poetry these days? Slapped around by various versions of modern newspeak, we tend to trust the written word less and less. That's why it is always refreshing to hear new voices on the horizon of imagination and poetic directness. This book is definitely one of the very few that dare to explore the very essence of poetic vision and invites a curious reader for a ride that is as exhilirating as your memory trip to places where you can feel finelly free. It's an appropriate tribute to a strong conviction about the beauty of life in all its glory and brutality - from a poet whose English is his second language... Read and enjoy it! Bruno Kyn
