Antony Rowland's Birkenau

Just a quick post to tell you about Birkenau, Antony Rowland's new pamphlet from the Knives, Forks and Spoons Press (scroll down towards the bottom). You might be able to guess the subject matter from the title – almost, anyway. It's kind of about the death camps, but more about the experience of visiting the death camps, of being a Holocaust tourist:

a building is talking
in loop German über
your morbid interest in

kitchen overload

The poem is accompanied with images. It's very good - buy it. Antony's brilliant Salt collection, The Land of Green Ginger, is also still available and will bring you delight, so buy that as well.
