Gregg Biglieri : Sleepy with Democracy
Publication Date: 2006
Ironic and sardonic, these witty poems, carefully sequenced but independent on their interlinking echoes and iterations, are a wake up call; they emerge from the gap between what is there and what is not, testimony to our impossible desire for clarity of vision.
— Peter Quartermain
Biglieri's composite talk keeps all terms open, with alarming interlinear bounce and extravagance ever palpable. This is a full, heartening book.
— Bill Berkson
