Comments

What a beautiful and and far-seeing review of Doug Powell's latest book, Chronic. You are right in noting what I had not myself noted before, that everything we loved about Powell's earlier books is still available, but that he has grown immeasurably, "the scope has become more expansive and more complex." Thanks for this.
