Comments A Few Things You Should Know About the Weasel

  • Lauren

    Snapshots of times long past and near-present, most witty and clever in tone, some more thoughtful and melancholy. Each of the four sections opens with this omniscient Q&A regarding Western philosophy - different than the others but I liked them.Highlights for me:JamestownConstantina: 1968A Very Rich Old Woman (*probably my favorite of the lot)Triolet: The Zaca FireSpring Flowers (*2nd favorite, if we're rating)Higher EducationAdded more Starkey to my TBR. This was great.


  • Mark Nenadov

    I'm disappointed. There are a few great, deeply meaningful poems in here and at times it is really witty and bold. However, the overall package is just weird, dark, and disjointed. Some of the pieces seem inane and the Q&A pieces seem so out of place.


  • Michelle Hoogterp

    The only poems I wasn't keen on were the Q&A ones. Otherwise this was terrific.
