In anticipation of our new reviews section upcoming in DB#15, Drunken Boat will be featuring mini-reviews on our blog every two weeks. You can subscribe to our RSS feed or check back in to see what our favorite writers have been reading.

I’m currently reading Helen Hajnoczky’s Poets and Killers: A Life in Advertising (Montreal: Snare, 2010), an anonymous figure’s biography crafted entirely through advertising slogans for products related to the character’s age. With each poem Hajnoczky collages phrases and slogans building biography through consumption. Every deft, uncanny, biographical phrase in Poets and Killers was lifted directly from print advertising; Hajnoczky has not needed to write a single word. Poets and Killers investigates the “individual in a world where we are all sold the same individuality”—all of us living “between the lines of advertising copy.” Poets and Killers gravitates in my library towards Robert Fitterman’s Metropolis XXX, Ryan Fitzpatrick’s Fake Math, Chris Alexander’s Panda and Graham Rawle’s exceptional collage novel Woman’s World.
