Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. CANDOR is a juxtaposition of essays, reviews, and poems by which Alan Davies has created a self-revealing form which is tonal critical commentary. The text comes up to itself in sometimes utter simplicity, revealing itself/himself.
Alan Davies is the author of many books of poetry, including NAME (This Press, 1986), ACTIVE 24 HOURS (Roof Books, 1982), RAVE (Roof Books, 1994), CANDOR [a collection of book reports and poems] (O Books, 1990), SIGNAGE [critical theory] (Roof Books, 1987)—and the more recent ODES (Faux Press, 2008), RAW WAR (Subpress, 2012), and ODES & FRAGMENTS (Ellipsis Press, 2013). He is working on a long sequence of Books, an ongoing journal of ideas called This Is Thinking, and an essay exploring war entitled "Why?! PerpetualGenocide." Author City: NEW YORK, NY USA
