I am such a fan, a long-time fan, of Allen Bramhall's shopping reports! I look forward to more as the Consumer, I mean, Holiday Season unfolds...!

What does this have to do with Poetry, he asks?

Well, as the lucky reader of his million-page manuscript that Meritage Press hopes to publish next year -- it has a lot to do with (his) poetry. That attention to detail ... that looseness in the unfolding of the text ... that smoothness ... humor, wryness, ... in sum:

that appeal.

For Allen writes poetry that is also mucho appealing!
