Ron sez: "So my question is this: Is Sonnetailia going to be one of those one-brilliant-book-makes-a-career moves, or is Nasdor finally emerging as the big time talent I suspect he has always been? Awhile back, Steve Fama & I were listing off the number of significant poets who didn’t publish a first real book of poems until they were on the high side of 40, starting with one Charles Olson (if not, say, Emily Dickinson). It would be great to discover that there are hundreds, even thousands, of unpublished pages, but my guess is that there isn’t. However, there is no reason at all that Sonnetailia can’t just be the first in a string of great books, and I hope to read every one."
I sez: BIG TALENT! FIRST IN A STRING!
