LG Williams is a vivid storyteller. He has written another characteristically startling fresh book with a provocatively happy ending. You can not read a book more enthralling, more moving, more unforgettably illumined by profoundly human truths than these poems on the rise, the fall , and the ultimate redemption of first-rate American stereotypes. Particularly impressive are LG's passions, allegiances and assessments, which are finally being heralded after years of recrimination, marginalization and slander.
Is this really LG Williams, the blinding beacon in the dank, dark, sticky folds of the derailed and overturned contemporary psyche? Perhaps he's right. Perhaps narcolepsy, hypocrisy, alcohol and sentimentality - forget divine intervention or scientific logic -are the perversely simple secret survival codes for the everyday American "raison d'eter".
