Kristina Darling Reviews Counting Sheep Till Doomsday at Boston Review


New Review of my second book at Boston Review.






Excerpt:
"The prose poems in Carlo Matos’s second collection engage questions about the nature of free will: How does one discern fate from one’s choices? To what extent will one’s life be circumscribed by the actions of others?"

Book Review of Paper Dreams


Check out my review of Paper Dreams at HTML Giant.





Excerpt:
"Paper Dreams recounts over a century of literary magazine history in the United States through primary and secondary sources, ranging from editorial pronouncements by Ezra Pound (a nearly ubiquitous editorial presence early in the 20th century) to the savvy branding strategies of George Plimpton (The Paris Review’s luminous impresario) and beyond to the current renaissance of literary journals flourishing on the internet like PANK, Brevity, and The Rumpus."
