Ex Machina reviewed in Hand+Star

Theodoros Chiotis reviews Ex Machina (click the quote for the full review) in Hand + Star:

Jonathan Ball is preoccupied not so much with the process of writing poetry as with the production of textuality in the age of information surplus. The evolutionary concepts implicit in Ball’s collection emphasize the fact that every single person who can read is now forced, for want of a better word, to become a carrier of the virus of textuality, resulting in “minds more powerful than rooms of computers”.
