Poetry. "Jeffrey Jullich finds the royal road to the unconscious dead-ending at the entrance to a scary Philip Johnson megalith: 'The tongue of St. Anthony in a glass box, that's/ My childhood for you, in technicolor, that and a/ Game of marbles on a hotel lobby floor.' In this Psychopathology of Everyday Life, however, accident becomes deliberation, as Jullich deploys his verbal tangles with pleasure, this and mastery, as an antidote to suffering: 'ilk amazon kin/ mustesteem same azimuth.' Poet conceal thyself! (I mean...) Like psychic space ('a sea coast pounded by/ drummers sleek in their wetsuits'), this book is at once comprehensible, strange, and exciting. It places you at the fascade, and puts the rock in your hand"—Stacy Szymaszek.
