THE BODYFEEL LEXICON reviewed at Tarpaulin Sky!
Over at the Tarpaulin Sky review site, Natalie Lyalin has this to say of Jessica Bozek's first collection, The Bodyfeel Lexicon (Switchback, 2009):
In Lexicon, language is used to create a bridge, as a plan for preservation, and as always, a way to communicate. In the end, Szklar and Wolf’s work amounts to an insistence on a textual survival—they were alive, they had thoughts, and they communicated. These documents and letters are evidence to this. Jessica Bozek’s writing pushes the reader around, turns its back, says weird things, and shocks with startlingly beautiful images.
