Review: Thin Kimono

User Review  - Geoff Wyss - Goodreads

A good rec. from Rachel Glaser. I'm not sure I'd call Craig a genius like she did--her own work is better--but there's a lot of fun and variety here. You never know what you're going to get when you turn the page: prose poem, aphorism, cut-up, anecdote. Read full review

Review: Thin Kimono

User Review  - Rachel Glaser - Goodreads

This book is easily one of my five favorite books of poetry ever read. It might be my favorite! It's hilarious and contemplative. It moves gorgeously through the surreal and mundane. Michael Earl Craig is a tremendous thinker and writer! Read full review
