On Pauline Uchmanowicz
Her poetry to me seems quite brilliant. I've been reading her recently completed manuscript, Trip Meter, and consider it to be first-rate. How shall I put it—maybe the most forthright thing I can say is that, when it's published, I'd be honored to write one of the blurbs for its backcover. My blurb would praise the poems for their lyricism and wit, their passion and intelligence. I would say that Trip Meter is one of the finest first books I've ever read.
