Here’s an excerpt from Joe Milazzo’s interview:
Tony Trigilio’s Inside the Walls of My Own House: The Complete Dark Shadows (of My Childhood) Book 2 (Blazevox) is a sneaky text. Mind you, I don’t mean to impugn the book in any way. Rather, “sneaky” is the only way I feel capable of describing how Trigilio lures you into these poems with an unassuming, even charming conceptual-cum-procedural transparency (“hey, we’re all binge-watchers here”) and tone (O’Hara-esque chattiness). But, by the time you realize that your cozy cup of tea has been laced with phenomenology and epistemology and ontology, it’s too late. The walls are closing in, your certainties are draining away, and you can’t help but admit that, as much as you fear for your comfort, a more intense tingle is telling you how thrilled you are.”
