TIME IS A MOTHER was a below-average collection for me. There were the occasional interesting poems, but the vast majority felt forced, edgy and lacking in style. I was annoyed by the structure of most of the poems, and while I liked some of the content, the actual “box” fell flat for me.
A difficult read, for those reasons. But I imagine it might resonate much more with other people.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Goran Lowie is an avid reader of all kinds of speculative fiction and poetry. For years, he's been rotting away in some rural hellhole in Belgium, but luckily he has literature to keep him going!
His real obsession with the genre sparked with the incomporable works of Ursula K. Le Guin, and his heart stayed there forever. Other favourite authors include Patricia A. McKillip, Mary Soon Lee, John Wiswell, Robert Silverberg and Italo Calvino.
When Goran isn't reading books, he's either editing this very magazine or creating lesson plans for his day-job as a high school teacher! You can find him on Twitter: @GoranLowie
