Poetry. "In the crazy wisdom of no coincedence, Joel Lewis's collection linked poem, LEARNING FROM NEW JERSEY hit the bed table along with Osip Mandelstam's '50 Poems'. Brothers in predilections, both poets have drawn from an ironic, loving regard for their cities. In Lewis's 'research expedition into/ an ordinary night," his poems draw from his long time legend garnering, epic harrowing, factlet-threshing observations of New Jersey territories. In these poems 'the white noise of secret radios' crackles amid the mysterious geography of 'Great Notch' and 'Ong's Hat.' LEARNING FROM NEW JERSEY is as energetic, faceted and textured as the place it evokes."—Kimberly Lyons
