Editorial Reviews

Review

Smart, nuanced, lush in their beauty, yet never unaware of beauty's price, the poems in Mule & Pear meditate on what to do with the ghosts of history by which, as if inevitably, we find ourselves now shaped, now cornered, and now inhabited -- each of us, then, an unwitting vessel made to carry the past forward. --Carl Phillips

Griffiths gifts us with deleted scenes, alternate endings, and a VIP pass to wander the sets of some of the greatest literature of our time. The reader won't be able to resist the urge to reread Hurston, Morrison, Larson, et. al. or put this new way of seeing perhaps a new poetry technology down. But what else should we expect from an artist who sees the world through so many mediums? --Frank X Walker
