Review of John Olson in Talisman

My review of John Olson’s novel In Advance of the Broken Justy (Quale Press, 2016) is in Talisman: A Journal of Contemporary Poetry and Poetics 45 (2017). The issue also has new work by Olson–here’s a brief excerpt: “Sometimes the future arrives yesterday and yesterday hatches out of a tired eyelid. The clouds pulse with lightning and rain glistens on the prairie grass. A residual emotion stumbles through my blood searching for resolution. I pull on a sweater and assemble a piece of water. Whatever you happen to see swaying and rotating is my interior. It does that whenever the wind is from the north.”
