Review quote

"Kevin Stein has developed a particularly American late-modern way of fooling around to get at something deep and necessary ('Okay, death can mean being in the wrong place / at the right time, but mostly it's just time'). He has found his own way of exemplifying and confirming Levi-Strauss's notion that artists 'shape the beautiful / and useful out of the dump heap of human life.'" Edward Hirsch, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for poetry and president of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation "Never hermetic, Stein is one whose forces do not so much bridge as fuse varieties of cultural experience (high and low, sacred and profane) into union." Donald Revellshow more
