Books Info:

Book of Accident: Poems free pdf Beckian Fritz Goldberg invites the reader into a shadowy atmosphere where her language prowls among strange images - hummingbirds become a 'fistful of violet amphetamines' and desire gnaws away like a 'live rat sewed up inside of us'. Reading this collection is like entering a graphic novel with missing panels, a noir world of queasy glints and feral adolescents, 'a world where no one has to love you'. Characters go by odd names - Torture Boy, Skin Girl, Lala Petite, Wolf Boy (his body 'pale as the plucked end of light') - punk kids fending for themselves in the expressionistic version of those old stories 'that began, Let's take the children out to the woods / and leave them'. And on every page, there's Goldberg's hard-edged wit, with the speed and flash of a video game. These poems show mercy but give no ground. They make you feel heartbroken and frightened and exhilarated at the same time.
