* Brandon Brown on Marie Buck’s AMAZING WEAPONS

Posted on December 6th, 2012 by robert. Filed under Books.


An excellent review of Marie Buck’s AMAZING WEAPONS, written by Brandon Brown, appeared in Jacket2 yesterday.

For Buck’s book to achieve its maximal effect we’d have to be living in the most debased time in history and “luckily,” we are! It’s a time in which “terror strikes / in the home of my dead sisters.” It’s a time in which all previous systems of transcendent relief have gone Darth Vader at best . . . The lyric speaker of Amazing Weapons manifests agency’s inversion by the stoic, hyper-bored way in which her body becomes the object of consumption by others . . . Like any great paratactic writing, the [book's] side-by-side propositions point to the breach between them. Buck exults in those breaches, inside of which are the real broadcasts from amazed life, from life enduring regimented mazeness. And part of the reality of that life, the everydayness of that life, is the articulation of “minor” desires and needs at the same time as major demonstrations by capital’s army attempt to crush formations towards autonomy, “I anticipate complete and utter destruction / And I want a maxi pad and I need a maxi pad.”

Read the rest here: “The Architecture and Ambience of the Maze.”

A few copies of AMAZING WEAPONS are still available!
