The Final Blurblr!

The Final Blurblr!

This miniseries of a column has been a blast to write, but how much can be written about blurbs before redundancy sets in? I am grateful to Real Pants for allowing me to go down this short avenue and explore the nature of the blurb.

Leave them laughing, someone said, so here are the blurbs from Bernadette Mayer’s book The Ethics of Sleep (Trembling Pillow Press, 2011). Thanks for reading, all!
