Some Clockfire love on the 95 Books blog:
96. Clockfire by Jonathan Ball
I can only think of this book in terms of adjectives – grim, lecherous, brilliant, seductive, horrific! Each of the plays described by the poems are equally impossible and posit truly nightmare-ish possibilities. These poems linger! I have been thinking about them since the launch. My favorite is the one in which the sun explodes and the play has only eight minutes left to exist.
