In a rave review, BOA poet Christopher Kennedy's Ennui Prophet is called "a bastion of cool," and "at times the literary equivalent of an unnerving smirk." The reviewer, Michael Costello, is writing for the blog We Who Are About to Die, and heaps heavy praise on Kennedy's latest volume of prose poems, which is set to launch in less than a week. "These are the surreal scenarios of a propheteering mind awash in the weariness expressed by the title," the reviewer muses, then also crediting Kennedy with both "graphic power and verbal economy a la Hemingway, but with his own inventiveness." The rest of the review is available here. Ennui Prophet by Christopher Kennedy will be avalible for purchase in June 2011, and is available for pre-order now.
