Anmeldelser

Mediocre odes to insignificant moments in the author's life. These are almost comically lame "poems," with hardly any flow or artistry whatsoever. Too many specific names and places are mentioned which mean nothing to anyone other the author. I'm clueless as to how this was a National Book Award finalist.
