I'm grateful for this rather stylish review of THE OPPOSITE OF CLAUSTROPHOBIA by Jonathan Mulcahy-King for X-Peri. You can see the entire generous review (with appropriate nod to Tom Beckett) HERE, but here's an excerpt/its first paragraph:
The Opposite of Claustrophobia: Prime’s Anti-Autobiography is a tender blend of modernist, de-colonial and procedural code in which poet Eileen Tabios elegantly defies Plato’s prescient warning against the dangers of web-connected memory, and that relying too heavily on external memory (he was referring of course to writing at the time) would have irreversible consequences on our ability to remember.
The review also cites definitively what actually is the opposite of "claustrophobia"--a first among this book's reviews!

Thank you, Universe.
