C. Perricone, Boatwhistle Books (JULY) Softcover $21 (144pp), 978-1-911052-02-9
Ah, footnotes. Nothing endearing or sexy about them—unless you’re such a geek of letters, language, history, and research that you’ve developed a fetish for their unique supporting role. But the humble footnote also knows how to strike out dynamically when the moment is right, and that’s what makes this project a stupendous romp. The author of A Summer of Monkey Poems more than twenty years ago, C. Perricone lives in New Jersey.
