Reviews - What do customers think about Roni Horn: Wonderwater (Alice Offshore)?
Some neat ephemera boxed with a great Anne Carson book. Jul 4, 2007
If you're looking at this review, chances are you're interested in the books in question not so much because of Roni Horn or the other authors, but because you've read other Anne Carson books and wonder whether this one is as good. it is. And as a bonus, you get two volumes of adorable throwaway lines by the great comic team of Jon Waters and Louise Bourgeois, and one volume of damn near unreadable goo by the reliably dreadful Helene Cixous. I'm an irrational Carson fan, grateful for any little thing, and would have gotten this regardless. What a relief, then, that it's this good. If you're new to Carson, you'll get more for the dollars with other books, like Plainwater and The Economy of the Unlost. if you're here for Bourgeois, you get muchmuchmore of her in the MIT Press collection The Destruction of the Father. If for Waters, you're a fan and will get this regardless, won't you?
