Peeping Mot by Andrew Maxwell

Excerpts | Ordering Info

"Like the cast of characters Andrew Maxwell has here assembled (Robert Walser, Aaron Kunin, Rene Char, Sir Thomas Browne, and more), Peeping Mot is a collection of brilliant and occult profundity. Its propositions admirably reinvent the paternal, make a wry and deep inquiry into the function of poetry, and wield the epigram as Chinese box, as koan. It is a book of uncommonly beautiful language and enigmatic intelligence, packed with soft surprises."
