Yesno

Daniel Zomparelli

Yesno by Dennis Lee (Anansi) is meant to be the second part of his earlier book Un.

Unfortunately, this one reads like a random map of Lee’s mind: it begs for a large dictionary. From start to finish it is, simply put, a struggle to enter the poems.

Perhaps the title is a reference to the responses of readers when buying this book.
