Read full description of the books Your Time Has Come:I like the size and cut of this book (about 4 inches tall). While those attributes come likely from economic and environmental rationals, it's still nice to handle something slightly different and have something to break up shelving a bit. Beyond that, the a-typical cut immediately breaks apart most of my flippant tendencies in opening a book. Instead of paying little mind to the book's shape, I'm awash with fond suspicion.
That said, I also particularly enjoy the near-american haiku focus found here, haikus in kind though not of the 5-7-5 syllable count sort of way, which doesn't make much sense for English since the ratio of morphemes to phonemes is pretty different(as Gary Snyder often points out). From this style choice (with notions of intentionality aside) comes a more subtle and natural feeling narrative movement clinging somewhere behind day-to-day life in the city. Regardless of haiku-ness, the brief snipits(have i made up this word?) serve to draw a lot of attention to the more minute details one might miss (even with a close reading). You have to turn the page to get past a set of two or three lines, not just accidentally glance at the following set. blah blah blah blah. this book is fun. read it.
