I am surprised that I have seen so little (anything?) written in the blog world about John Wilkinson's last book Lake Shore Drive. It's one of my favorite books I've read in a long time. At a time when so many people are returning to anti-aesthetic simplicity (Juliana Spahr, Anna M etc), Wilkinson engages in this wonderfully poetic language (maybe Keatsian), even as he collages in New Order and various culture industry debris, in powerfully political poems. Buy it at Salt.
