I'm grateful, deeply grateful. But, mostly, I am amazed by this review. Very very surprised (specifically at that first paragraph). But Kevin Killian, as many know, is a generous being. Thank you, Kevin: AMNESIA was blessed to be read by you.

Here's part of what Kevin says:

The “forgets” are often tender as well as candid, and it would take a hard heart not to be moved by Tabios’ vision of life as a pageant of feeling and vision, unrolling before us on crystalline rods oiled perfectly with WD40. Has anything happened to anyone anywhere that this book does not prophesy forgetting? I doubt it.
I also like reviews that teach me something. So now, I know what "WD40" is -- who'da thunk I'd learn it from a poetry review?!

Bless you, Kevin Killian.
