Anthony Madrid review on Rhino Poetry (2021).

Greg Masters rated it 5 stars on Goodreads. 6/6/2021

 it was amazing

The voices of New Yorkers shine through in this stunning book-length poem that chronicles the conversations from the backseat of a cab as notated by the driver. As poet Charles Reznikoff did 50+ years ago with his grand works Testimony and Holocaust, the poet here allows the speech of others to compose the text. We get the raw and unguarded rantings and ruminations of passengers who, in aggregate, delineate – and bring to life – the wide range of class and ethnicities that make up the city. The poems build momentum using line breaks to spiral the unfiligreed recitations into ever-revealing crescendoes. (less)
