Basil King's latest Marsh Hawk Press book, HISTORY NOW, is reviewed by Eileen Tabios in Galatea Resurrects!  You can see the review HERE, but here's an excerpt:
The blurber Ammiel Alcalay (aptly) says about History Now that the book presents “the perspective of someone who has been trained not just to look but to see, and not to miss anything in his field of vision.” I agree, but I’d expand that to say that King doesn’t just see everything (in his field of vision) but he wants to see everything. Surely what King has accomplished in this book (as well as his other accomplishments as both writer and a visual artist) would not have been possible without such an immense desire.
