Author: Will Hubbard
Publisher: Ugly Duckling Presse (2011)
The prose poems in Curvism, like the form of writing after which the book is named, approach their subjects boldly, parsing instants of memory with complex, unbroken strokes. "I love Will Hubbard's Curvism. In discrete little blocks of prose that move like poems Hubbard achieves a humble universality and a beautiful amalgam of public and private mysteries. There is something about the deftness with which he speaks of books, family—especially his father—and the changing light and passing qualities of the natural world that is a great comfort to read. In this miniature space he's created that is both private and public, both a physical space and a mental space, I feel welcomed."
