My Review of Campbell’s Shimmer Report in Vallum 14:1

Brian Campbell’s Shimmer Report is a book of artistic power and accomplishment, wisdom, and pleasure. Among its many dimensions, both of form and of subject matter, a notable one is its many wonderful developments of the theme, “Out of certain mud, we rose” (“The Arrow”): aspiration surviving and blossoming in the all-too-human facts of damage, discouragement, external barriers, accidents, etc.

I am pleased to have a review of Brian Campbell’s book of poems, Shimmer Report, in the most recent issue of Vallum 14:1.  You can purchase a paper subscription to Vallum on their website, a digital edition of Vallum 14:1 via pocketmags or via the Apple App Store, or find a paper copy at your local independent bookstore.
