Poetry. Jewish Studies. In her second book, MY KAFKA CENTURY, Arielle Greenberg raises the gothic, European ghosts sealed under the glib facade of contemporary American culture. Trying on the sometimes hilarious, sometimes discomforting guises of Jewish folk humor, pop eroticism and kiddie epistemology, she reveals and revels in the cracks and contradictions of a bristling, brainy Babel. "Greenberg remembers that what poetry does best is produce complex meaning in the never-ending possibilities language affords"--Michael R. Allen.

This is a very confusing collection, but I enjoyed what I could wring some understanding out of.
