Poetry. ACCIDENCY is Joel Kuszai's first book and collects "A Miscellany," a serial poem that emerged in limited edition chapbooks in the 1990s, and "Brooklyn Yards," his first extended experimentation with procedural methods of composition. "Joel Kuszai's anarchist-inflected social lyrics wreak havoc on the simulated sense of our surround-sound society. Kuszai's exuberant poems surge with voicings that pierce thought. ACCIDENCY is a pleasure of the senses, mindful of ear and eye. This long-awaited debut is scintillating"—Charles Bernstein.
