Poetry. Of Robert Estep's SUENO(S) FOR ALEJANDRA, Philip Terry writes: "Like a surreal peepshop, Robert Estep's dazzling narrative poems zoom in on a cast of eccentric Parisians from mezzo sopranos, landlords, grocers, and talking parrots to puppeteers, pole-dancers, bankers and drag artists. Estep has taken the encyclopaedic tradition of Proust and Perec, and reduced it to the dimensions of a postage stamp. A dizzying achievement."
