Paul Reidinger's tag cloud

Smashwords book reviews by Paul Reidinger

    An astounding and unique poem, a genuine contribution to American literature. Language of fractured beauty, images flashing by as if seen through the windows of a speeding car, echoes of "Howl" and "Leaves of Grass." The poem is intimate, epic, honest, uncomfortable, funny and carried from beginning to end by a twisting energy.
