The New Tourism: new poems from Harry Mathews

Oulipo member and avant-garde novelist Harry Mathews has a new book of poetry out. The New Tourism is his first collection of poems in almost two decades, and his first book since the remarkable My Life in CIA, published five years ago.

I got a copy of The New Tourism last night; it’s a very nicely produced, wonderful-looking book, and new work from Mathews is always exciting.
