Here’s my appreciative review of Texture Notes by Sawako NakayasuMany thanks to Colin & the good folks at Cutbank Literary Journal, University of Montana! 

From me:  “The latest collection by translator and poet Sawako Nakayasu, Texture Notes, features 48 original journal entries dated from 2003 to 2004, arranged in a variety of textures and rhythms.
