Review

The Typewriter Series may be known to just about everyone with a Facebook account: images of these poems, as they originally appeared, have been showing up on Facebook walls for several years. This collection will be of interest to anyone who’s seen any of them and wondered if this guy is really any good. (Short answer: he is, if you have any appreciation at all for deep and just-this-side-of-mushy romanticism.) About half the poems included are in the Typewriter format: several others are in Blackout — a page of text, with everything blacked out except the few words of the verse — and a few more are in ordinary type, accompanied by Gregson’s photography. He’s good at that, too.
