Love, War, Fire, Wind: Poetry Pick for 2009

This just in: the Katz/Ayton poetry/art book "Love, War, Fire, Wind: Looking Out from North America's Skull" has been picked by the poetry section as one of the highlights of 2009. Here is the link.

From the review (thanks to Bob Holman & Margery Snyder):

Eliot Katz is an American Purist, a political writer sans compromise, a keen observer of the human condition and what got us here. Love, War, Fire, Wind combines his words with art works by William T. Ayton. It has some big, blistering poems—“Rocking the Globe from D.C.”: “They have boarded off the demonstration’s / central planning space”—and short character sketches—“‘My shoes are too tight,’ / she answered. / ‘I think if I keep walking / one day they’ll stretch.’”...

Congratulations to Eliot Katz. I'm pretty happy, too.
