“Unequal To Me”

Poet Zoe Whittall has created a found poem “culled and adapted from Canadian Notes & Queries, The Globe & Mail, The National Post, The New York Times, The Guardian”:

Much of the novel seems held together with a kind of teary hormonal paste.

There’s been much recent parley about “men’s fiction” and the vaginal shadow it has been condemned to live in.

I can sniff out the ink of the men.

Ms. Whittall has taken literary reviews of female authors, assembled them, and switched the gender of subject. The result is quite interesting.
