Poetry. "The speculative interruptions of this collection of organs—renamed, repurposed and disguised as a book of poems—sculpt the shape between varied and intimate utterances. It is cruel and consoling, internal, viscous, full and delicate."—Stephanie Barber
"'There's delirium and there's / the world...' Like waking inside a psychedelic noir, FAKE MOON is a missive of strange reporting on the human condition. After a shave, in Fischer's world, I'd be hesitant to look in the mirror, dive in the pool water. Fake or not, this moon's pull is very real."—Eric Amling
