Sarah Anne Cox, Author Krupskaya $11 (59p) ISBN 978-1-928650-12-6
Gertrude Stein's traditions of grammatical and cognitive experimentation are alive and well in Sarah Anne Cox's Arrival, whose eight sequences disarrange and rearrange the categories of thought. The first (and perhaps most fun) should delight armchair linguists, being both an exploration of pronouns and verb moods and a love story gone wrong: ""When I said he was an indirect statement it was about my relationship to the him."" Cox's later, more challenging sequences break lines and sentences up into much smaller bits, investigating chronology, international politics, memory and forgetting: ""those who are afraid of gunfire will/ not remove the body.""
