THE NEW CLEAN
Jon Sands has traveled into a ridiculous world, where nothing is too hilarious to not be honest, and nothing is too honest. Best of all, he's packed us in his suitcase. He represents an ever-changing population of those raised elsewhere who find themselves beckoned by the history, mystique, and magic-makers of New York City. These poems inhabit their own contradictions, and exquisitely navigate the many complicated sides of what it means to be alive.
