This is t poetry for the faint of heart. Ranson-Polizzotti's prose reads, as ted in the introduction, like Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's meets In Cold Blood. There are echoes here of the New York School poets -- Ashbery, Ginsberg, to name a few -- yet Yeats and Whitman bubble to the surface as do other influences -- Notably, Nabokov all combining to create a work that is wholly Ranson's own. Two of these poems were released with New Amsterdam Records and were widely reviewed and featured on NPRs All Things Considered as part of The Words Project. This is, to quote the Hartford Courant, A sensual delight.
