KIRKUS REVIEW

Witty and irreverent chatter is the only way to characterize this volume of alternate poems and prose paragraphs- Hemlet, Don Giovanni, used cars, existentialism are some of the topics he chooses to be flippant about; but his flippancy is always well turned, his phrases neat and occasionally wise. There is a sparkle in this book- the sparkle of an umasually gifted and gay and cynical sophomore. Definitely for a ""literary"" audience- not too wide a one at that.
