James Gibbons gives Michael O’Brien’s Avenue a perceptive, enthusiastic review at the web journal Hyperallergic. It concludes, “At its core, his slender book remains true to the etymological origins of the word avenue: a way of access, a means of approach. Avenue is a thoroughfare of phenomena ever approaching, ever receding — a map of the compressed extravagance revealed in the ‘show of the world / when act is suspended.'” Read the full review here.
