Poetry. "HEAVY PETTING is a hell of a sexy book. A sexy and generous book. A book where thighs are 'spread like warm apple butter,' where one eye is so close to another there is no sight, where we don't 'feel clean unless...burning,' where the not forgotten magic of the Mississippi River, 'giant but quiet' makes lovers fall asleep inside each other, where when it is 'too cold to sunbathe' the speaker writes letters to skin—the whole thing a kind of 'relationship porn.' Or maybe this book is feeling porn... So, let's do it. Let's live a burning life. Read this book. Be touched and burned and be happy about it. We don't feel clean until we are burning anyway."—Dorothea Lasky
"If you wake up tomorrow early and Frank O'Hara is a Sony Walkman, Xanax is the new Surgeon General, and someone you're not sure you recognize as your beloved is writing his/her name on the inside of your lip, don't be alarmed, you're reading HEAVY PETTING by Gregory Sherl."—Matt Hart

Great stuff, esp. the first section and the prose poetry at the end. Sometimes this poetry seems to operate by keeping the reader inside the associations of the poet. Luckily, we want to go wherever Gregory Sherl is taking us. Recommended reading: Sherl's The Oregon Trail Is the Oregon Trail. レビュー全文を読む

Really charming. The whole confessional thing gets a little repetitive. What I really appreciated was how it felt like it was written in sequence, probably because it was, for the most part, so you get the sense of progression and development. Sexy, too.
