As far as I know, copies of THE CONNOISSEUR OF ALLEYS haven't yet arrived on Amazon.com (though they are taking orders here HERE). This hasn't prevented Amazon Hall of Fame reviewer Grady Harp from reviewing it. Perhaps his review will encourage you to order it, whether from Amazon or elsewhere (e.g. SPD).  You can see Mr. Harp's review HERE, but here's an excerpt:
Anyone familiar with the rather enormous output of poetry and experimentation written communication and style will have an idea of what to expect in this newest publication THE CONNOISSEUR OF ALLEYS (the title alone invites creativity). But then again, not necessarily, because every time Tabios sets her mind to a new project, something unique happens. This collection of works is a collection of interconnected poems, each time a poem begins a reference shines, a moment of recognition and yet that moment so embellished with fresh perspective that the result is as mesmerizing as it is exquisite poetry.
