I love the beat generation!
Mostly poetry in the confessional vein (written before she was Bok-again). Some very fine, moving work in here. Unfortunately a few poems in I realised Camp is in batshit crazy love with similes; there's scarcely a poem without one (or several). And it's not that her similes are poor--they're usually very good--it's just that once you become aware of a writer's personal cliches they smack you in the face every time you experience them thereafter, which often ends up being quite distracting.
