Reviews - What do customers think about EQUATIONS = equals (Green Integer)?
Excellent! Jan 31, 2007
I came across Ross's work when my roommate went to a random poetry reading of his in Paris. I was thumbing through her copy of this book when I was unexpectedly struck by the talent this man has for words. I must admit, I'm not a poetry connoisseur by any means, but his style reminds me of Allen Ginsberg's "Howl" a little bit. Very stream of consciousness with a unique way of jumbling words together to produce an end product that really moves you. I am rarely inspired by poetry (which is maybe why I don't read much of it), but this work definitely got to me. I highly recommend checking this out!
