The sheer depth of thinking behind every placed word unlocks the low murmuring everydayness of thought and allows a flood of light to overwhelm the mind. This is not some God poet speaking in an uncommon tongue, but a rough big man with a talent to disect this life and all that it means, to spread out the beauty and filth for our perusal. This is wholesome and bloody and feral, writing that tramps on the banal, rips the flesh from safety and spurts out fear. This is a book to give yourself up to, to choke on and submit to. Astonishing, pioneering and unforgettable.
