Cactus Press Chapbooks Reviewed

The winter 2010 Cactus Press chapbooks got a little bit of press last week in the form of a review written by Jacob McArthur Mooney for Northern Poetry Review. It’s rare that chapbooks get such focused attention, so I’m very pleased for the four authors: Darren Bifford, Edward Nixon, Marc di Saverio and Sarah Teitel. 

About Marc di Saverio’s Sanatorium Songs, Mooney writes:

Di Saverio is a gifted guy. He can track the anarchy-seeking scent of our bastardized language with a singular bravery, but what makes his work resonate beyond simple Beat parlour tricks is his ability to narrate his instincts with poetry. The effect is chilling, disorienting, and a little embarrassing; like stopping to watch a car crash, then turning around to find that the driver has somehow repositioned himself behind you, and has watched you watching him die. Di Saverio is never not in control of Sanatorium Songs.  

You can read the rest of the review here.
