Laura Mullen’s Enduring Freedom: A Little Book of Mechanical Brides (Otis/Seismicity Editions, 2012)

invited-330

My review of Laura Mullen’s new book, Enduring Freedom, is now up in the latest edition of Hyperallergic Weekend.

Here’s a brief excerpt:

It is my hope that future literary historians, looking back at the beginning of the twenty-first century, will apprehend Enduring Freedom as, by turns, a clever, provocative, entertaining, and unsettling document that wittily (but no less seriously) bears witness to what life was like under the Bush regime. To be sure, the Bush years were for some people not a period of “enduring freedom” but of a “freedom” that needed to be endured.
