Scouring Books: Somewhere in Advance of Nowhere

Somewhere in Advance of Nowhere
by Jayne Cortez

Originally published in 1996, this is a book of poetry. Correct, a book of poetry, something that's hard to find many current cultural touchstones over (unless you're Billy Collins are somesuch current favorite), given that you pretty much need to be immersed directly in the poetry scene to know anything about poetry that you won't find in a schoolroom or odd public offering (I would tend to caution those). As such, Ms. Cortez comes from my college days, the University of Maine in Orono, where there's a vibrant scene one would like to perhaps permanently reside in, if that were possible without some kind of tenure. This is an odd remnant from those days.

Bookshelf status: at the very least, needs to be reread.
