Genrecide

By Adeena Karasick

Adeena Karasick’s third book of poems provides the reader with an experience akin to a roman candle going off in the dark night of your soul. Palimpsesting Hitler and Derrida with The Violent Femmes, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, images from consumer advertising, and the cartoons of Gary Larson, Genrecide explores the intersection of multiple cultures, codes, idioms and constructs that impact on the social construction of female identity. An extended and extensive play and pun on shifting perceptions and language, it provides a glimpse of the very origins of new possibilities of the spoken word.
