Poetry. Liz Waldner's HOMING DEVICES is "more of a wiry museum than a book" that takes turns in language either for its own sense of aversion or for the quality of the ride. The book is restless in its methods but tricky at the same time, drawing upon both historical and contemporary myth, allusions to high and low culture and personal efforts throughout. "HOMING DEVICES awakened me to how often I'm unused when I read, here I'm occupied, confused, satisfied" --Eileen Miles.
