    What I find most appealing about this book is its pervasive sense of dislocation met with bemusement rather anxiety I recognize a world where Strauss, Adorno, and Ethel Merman are all invoked in a poem that describes a parade in Pasadena that follows exactly the parade route of the celebrated Tournament of Roses Rose Exile And it isn t just me you too know what it is to go grocery shopping to the sounds of Celine Dion, Cher, Michael Bolton, Faith Hill, Toni Braxton with a cart fille What I find most appealing about this book is its pervasive sense of dislocation met with bemusement rather anxiety I recognize a world where Strauss, Adorno, and Ethel Merman are all invoked in a poem that describes a parade in Pasadena that follows exactly the parade route of the celebrated Tournament of Roses Rose Exile And it isn t just me you too know what it is to go grocery shopping to the sounds of Celine Dion, Cher, Michael Bolton, Faith Hill, Toni Braxton with a cart filled with eggs, cookies, 90 fl oz containers of anti bacterial dishwashing liquid A History of Western Music Chapter 63 Whitney Huston It s a world with which so many of us are familiar and how fortunate we are to have it rendered for us in Kleinzahler s wise and artful poetry

    This new book of poems by Kleinzahler is a bit of a stretch His many registers oftone and vocabulary are sometimes fun, but his experimental poems I found weirdlyunreadable There is a fantastic fable called the Tuq Tuq Tree that left me cold.However his poem on Vachel Lindsay s poetic career was rollicking inviting with a nod to Frank O Hara He is a man of the lonely hotel room with its neon sign, thedark humors of daily living, which gives him a special niche in today s poetry.Some poems are This new book of poems by Kleinzahler is a bit of a stretch His many registers oftone and vocabulary are sometimes fun, but his experimental poems I found weirdlyunreadable There is a fantastic fable called the Tuq Tuq Tree that left me cold.However his poem on Vachel Lindsay s poetic career was rollicking inviting with a nod to Frank O Hara He is a man of the lonely hotel room with its neon sign, thedark humors of daily living, which gives him a special niche in today s poetry.Some poems are good, while others did not reach me

    Kleinzahler elevates the travelogue into perfect, isometric tension here, partaking equally of the rueful satisfaction of Jack Gilbert s in house exile and Kenneth Patchen s chance encounters with the ridiculous but real crimes of the imagination With the stuttering symmetry of a bebop sensibility and a smartly deferred fervency, The Hotel Oneira is an elegant ledger of doubt and regret.

    More delightfully greasy lyrics from contemporary American poet and Jersey native, delicious and intoxicating like subterranean Cantonese kitchens in the wee hours of a summer night downtown.
