Praise For Dispatch From The Future


This month’s Rumpus Book Club selection – Leigh Stein’s Dispatch from the Future – gets an outstanding review from Guernica Magazine:

“Stein’s poems are the very perfect product of a frenetic in-between culture where knowledge is currency but also poverty, and its artistic output is underscored by a perennial ennui—like the girl in high school who wears a black beret and talks about death all the time.”

Also, be sure to watch the trailer for, as well as The Rumpus’ own Brian Spears reading from, Stein’s book here.
