Seventeen poems from Cleveland's T. L. Kryss. "There will be no academic squabbles about authorship or emotional influences on this work," remarks Steven Ferguson in his introduction to this small chapbook. Indeed, Kryss takes us to Treblinka, Cleveland's lower east side, and even out toward the edge of the solar system. His poetry is tight, concise, and unique in voice. Tom Kryss--along with d.a. levy, William Wantling, and Charles Bukowski--remains an icon of America's largely disregarded underground literary tradition. STRANGE ATTRACTIONS, in addition to Tom's poems, is host to several drawings by Harland Ristau, Dan Nielsen, Hilary Krzywkowski, and T. L. and Carolyn Kryss.--Kurt Nimmo
