"House Inspections" Review in Rain Taxi

CRNielsen_03_ cr John Bang Jensen

In the review written by John Bradley for the new issue of Rain Taxi, Bradley highlights Nielsen's prose and how the poems in House Inspections take us into a dream world where everyday objects take on a new meaning. Bradley emphasizes how Nielsen's tone is objective and leaves the reader in a state of awe. Bradley says, "The prose poem's affinity for the surreal, however, should be celebrated, as should Nielsen's skill at plumbing the strangeness of the human psyche. House Inspections offers tantalizing mysteries for a world all too often gnawing on its own cynicism."

Born in 1966, Carsten René Nielsen is the author of nine books of poetry. His poetry has been featured in magazines in Italy, Germany, Canada and the US. His most recent translated collection, House Inspections, is published by BOA. Nielsen lives in Aarhus, in Denmark. The BOA publication, House Inspections, can be purchased here.
