This was an interesting poetry collection. I had never read any poems by Dean Young before, and some of his images really amazed me. Sometimes this was a pleasant amazement, sometimes a sense of disgust. Almost all of the poems elicited some kind of strong reaction from me however, so while I'm not going to start quoting anything from this collection anytime soon, I liked it enough that I want to read more from Young. Recommended if you're interested in contemporary poetry.
