Thanks to Peter Gizzi -- who read from his raw and powerful forthcoming book Threshold Songs (NB do get hold of his other books The Outernationale and Some Values of Landscape and Weather if you can) -- and to all who organised the Albion Beatnik Bookshop reading. I think this notice in The Oxonian Review qualifies as my first review:

Emerging from the broad French Symbolist and Surrealist traditions, via T.S. Eliot, and with more than a touch of NY School glitter and wide allusiveness, Pindar’s learned, witty, and admirably controlled poems tend to follow an attractively quirky logic not often seen in contemporary British poetry. At their best, they expose the dark underside of the Metaphors We Live By.
