Reviews - What do customers think about Hunting Down the Monk (A. Poulin, Jr. New Poets of America)?
Fresh language, insight Aug 2, 2005
It's a rare moment to read a poet's first book and be so taken with it's fresh language and vivid insight about the human condition. Kusserow's experience as an anthropologist makes these poems plated with meaning--crossing and questioning dichotomies of class, place, and spiritual longing from East to West. This is a rave.
