New Review + Year End List
A hug thank you goes out to Brandi Spering for writing a review of Some of the Times on her blog. She writes:
"Each page varies in length and structure, frequently avoiding punctuation, which conveys a sense of continuation; this, and the placement of line breaks, contribute to the list-like flow of the writing. Myers catalogs what she absorbs, from daily news, illness, loneliness, decay, as well as comradeship. Often philosophical, “Some of The Times” prompts its readers to evaluate their own framework for construction."
Read the full review.
Some of the Times also appeared on Entropy's "Best of 2020-2021: Poetry Books & Poetry Collections" list. This is a really fun list to go through, as it includes some of my own favorites but also many books that I have not read yet and am excited to check out.
I am sad to see Entropy closing. It has been such an important resource over the years. I especially loved reading their book reviews and interviews, and I feel like there are fewer venues that feature small and indie press book reviews (I hope that I am wrong about that). I wish the best of luck to all the editors and folks who have dedicated themselves to Entropy over the years!
