Retractions and Revelations
by A.W. Strouse
Edited by Ingrid Jacobsen
43 p. $12
In this collection of haikus and one liners, Strouse meditates on the paradoxes of western spirituality. It’s funny, sexy, romantic, and earnest as a choir boy.
Read these like aphorisms, or psalms, or horoscopes, or fortune cookies.
