I've been reading Jim Harrison's new book Dead Man's Float in the mornings over the past week and it is one serious bulldozer.
...Saying that makes me look up "bulldozers." Wiki says bulldozers are "equipped at the rear with a claw-like device (known as a ripper) to loosen densely compacted materials." That's exactly it. Out of sharpness, maybe even roughness--plainspoken, no frills, no artful maneuvering--this book loosens me, shakes me up even, and I'm a little startled, in the best way, at how it seems to come out of nowhere. And if this book is a bulldozer, there are a few poems competing for the role of ripper. My favorite so far are these two -- "Zona" and "Seven in the Woods."
