"Frederick Seidel's sound and power, his heat and beautiful coldness, are unique and create a lyricism that is instantly dire, instantly recognizable as Seidel. The Poems in Going Fast, his sixth collection, are set in New York, London, Paris, Milan, Bologna, and Tahiti."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

There is no one who can write about a Ducati like Seidel. This collection was off the hook. A blistering read! Read full review

User Review  - Eric T. Voigt Voigt - Goodreads

Enjoyed it's non-travelogue-name-dropping-esque bits most of all, but also managed to find lyricism in the structures and sites this Seidel around that I didn't in "Ooga-Booga." Neato. I'm a Seidel fan. Read full review
