    1. Like the title, this book is brilliant in its masterful prose poetry delivery. Fast paced, invective and dashing. I read it from cover to cover the first time, and have slowed down with each successive read!

    2. poetry that cook your insides and still manages to serve them raw to you on a platter, like oysters, and pearls, too.
