In depth review of In Retail from LitBitch

This is quite the review of Jeremy Dixon‘s In Retail. Really thoughtful and absolutely got the concept behind the design and the motivation of the book. (one happy poet I think, eh, Jeremy?)

an incredibly observant collection

Consumer culture is embedded into the very form of the writing itself.

That line in the final stanza is incredible. ‘Mother says contactless is Satan’s kiss’. Payment is a glide of the hand, quick, dismissive, a kiss that never touches the glass. Thoughtlessness cushions temptation.

Thank you, Lydia Hounat!
