Sensational Review of 'Litany for the City'

Recently, Ryan Teitman's Litany for the City was reviewed and highly praised by Mary: Journal of New Writing. The careful and thoughtful review catches on (and gives full credit and appreciation) to all the finer details of Teitman's new book.  Highlighted are the skills Teitman employs through his language and other poetic devices:  from his choice of the word "litany" to his use of the preposition "for" in the book's title. Called "impressive" by the review, it is suggested that the artfulness of Litany for the City comes from Teitman's ability to balance "curiosity about present and ancient cities" without losing the creativity of his craft. Readers are taken through a whirlwind of exotic and familiar cities in the poetry, and are sure to enjoy the ride! Click here to read the review. And click here to snag a copy of "Litany for the City" for your own bookshelf!
