Editorial Reviews


Joe Pan's stunning debut collection explores and collides the dual experiences of self and world in a language and music superbly calibrated. There is an authority of voice and a sweep of experience that graces each of these beautifully made poems. - Stuart Dischell, author of Backwards Days, Dig Safe, Evenings & Avenues..........[This] ambitious first collection shows its strength immediately. Narrative and pastiche combine to defy easy categories. I am especially moved by the series of poems entitled 'Memory of the Body,' finding in each a living portrait of one cognizant and honest in the minutes of his life. - Claudia Keelan, author of The Devotion Field, Utopic, The Secularist..........If consciousness is a stream, then this book is a stream flooded over, a whitewater of understanding and empathy. Inventive and eclectic. - J. C. Hallman, author of The Chess Artist and The Devil is a Gentleman --Book

Autobiomythography & Gallery is the best new book of poetry read by this reviewer this year. It is incredibly strong....This is great poetry. --Matt Soucy, Coldfront Magazine

In his passionate response to Jonathan Franzen ('Why Experimental Fiction Threatens to Destroy Publishing....' Harper's), Ben Marcus outlines a new writer, one who is more concerned with tricking out his reader's Wernicke s area a part of the brain that processes language than delivering anyone through a nifty but necessarily diminutive story. Marcus hails 'writers who have pounded on the emotional possibilities of their mode,' who 'bend the habitual gestures around new shapes.' I celebrate every time a book with Marcus' sensibilities rolls off the press. Joe [Pan]'s first collection of such a book. [His] sense of language is striking nearly perfect, in some poems. He seems to be after what might be called 'the new get,' 'get' as in 'I don't get it.' Autobiomythography is remarkable as a response to that frustrated quandary; spending just a few minutes with the book promotes the sense that there is, in fact, something important to understand there... --Adam Robinson, JMWW
