Lyrical Interference by Norman Finkelstein

$12.00

“The wild is always unprecedented, but never inconsistent. This is the knowledge that makes American scholarship American. Norman Finkelstein offers unprecedented insights here whose facts consist of one Soul purpose: Friendship. Here the imagination of poetry is Friendship on the line. And driving that line are energies of the inevitable (if we are to live, Friendship is inevitable): motions outward; an outstretched hand; a goddamn big car bought and paid for lovingly. These energies speak simply, and doing so, they accomplish new simplicities which Finkelstein boldly proposes as the most radical virtues of poetic art. Read and see.” – from the introduction by Donald Revell
