The Book of Frenzies


Frenzies reverberate with the ghosts of Kenneth Patchen and Kenneth Koch as the poet invents a universe of whimsical revelations. These poems powerfully reject ordinary logic, moving instead by sheer negative capability. Gritty and zany as an early Bob Dylan song, the poems delight, full of iguanas, crocodiles, and people living on the edge. Lindsey captures the absurdity of the bright light of our days and the deep darkness of our nights.
