Rhythm & Booze
Late last night I picked Rhythm & Booze as the first of those forty to read, mostly because it was selected for publication by Maxine Kumin (I wished her a Happy Birthday a few weeks ago). It was late, and I didn’t intend to do more than browse a bit, but I ended up reading the whole thing twice, so I’m a sleepy man, too.
I love the book, particularly the first two thirds or so, which is filled with fabulous villanelles. Her other book, Jazz Funeral, was published last January and I intend to read it for review this weekend — tonight I’ll be busy with the last rehearsal before the first real gig (tomorrow!) for Fractal Folk.
