  1. Oh wow, The Boy, The Mole, etc. doesn’t even have a plot? It was getting such commercial love last year that I was curious, but unfortunately the more I hear about it the less interested I am in checking it out…
    But I’m glad you had a decent time with both, even if the poems didn’t quite live up to your previous experience with the author.

    • Nope; each double page is essentially its own little vignette. It was a birthday gift and I loved it for the artwork, but I think a thin narrative tying some of the moments together would have improved it overall.

      • Ah, makes sense! Perhaps I’ll skip it after all, I suspect I’d feel the same. I’m glad you found the artwork worth reading for at least! 🙂

  2. I haven’t read any of Jericho Brown’s work but I’ve heard really good things. Despite your lukewarm rating, I think you gave a pretty positive impression overall and I’m intrigued!
