Poetry. 'Euphoria is / the obligation of nightmare' he writes in WARRANTY IN ZULU. And then Matthew Gavin Frank shows us way after way that we might understand euphoria. Way after way in which we might understand the subtlety of nightmare. This collection is full of yesses. Full of joy. Full of deliciousness and full of disgust. This collection triples the garlic in every recipe, and eats, probably, a double portion of everything. I thank him for that. For the language that is rich like the food is rich. For the language that is loved, like hunger is loved. Ravishment, nourishment--but always, yes, taking in. Always accepting and always, through the body, some wild and complicated sustenance--Sarah Vap.
