    I love Lidija Dimkovska’s DO NOT AWAKEN THEM WITH HAMMERS (Ugly Duckling Presse). Ljubica Arsovska’s and Peggy Reid’s English translations from the Macedonian are seamless. Perhaps only a Macedonian poet could so eloquently merge counter-culture and New Age references with the essence of Surrealism, Ginsberg, Virginia Woolf, Aristotle, mythology, pop culture, and personal narrative, creating a brilliant cacophony that reflects a shifting, complex identity and witty movement of mind.

Lines like, “My brothers are retro-refugees in the new exile of the asylum-seekers' hostel" are pure rock-n-roll. If one was the merge the poetry Bob Dylan, Arthur Rimbaud, Andre Breton, and Paul Celan, one would get the work of Lidija Dimkovska.

    Not really my thing. I'm going to return it to the library. I didn't really read all the poems. Not really my thing. I'm going to return it to the library. I didn't really read all the poems.

    One of the best new poetry books I've read in a long time. One of my favorite things about her voice is its strength; no melancholy reverie here. One of the best new poetry books I've read in a long time. One of my favorite things about her voice is its strength; no melancholy reverie here.
