Poetry. "'Everything is readable / No one knows what's next'—these lines late in his book characterize Andrew Levy's poetry. That we can't decide whether intentionally or not makes the pleasure of Curve all the greater. John Cage liked best 'art that is incomprehensible (Joyce and Duchamp) and...art that is too nose on your face (Satie).' Andrew's poems seem at once to have both these qualities. 'Such artists,' wrote Cage, 'remain forever useful...in each moment of our daily lives'"—Jackson Mac Low.
