Holden eloquently lures us into his world of filmic verse and imagistic wanderlust. We have no choice but to take these illuminating trips with the poet, from one unsettling moment to another. An economy of language, an attention to the importance of the image, and a sophisticated understanding of rhetoric make this an essential read. This is a book that celebrates both the lyric and the avant-garde, the formal and the abstract. Trains of Winnipeg is an outstanding and unique poetic debut.
