Kit Robinson: The Champagne of Concrete

The Champagne of Concrete, Kit Robinson (Potes & Poets, 1991)

More expansive & formally various than Ice Cubes, the last KR book I read, yet also more funny, more testy, more politically acute. A wonderfully quirky, slanted set of observations of American corporate life. If Dilbert were taller, handsomer, had a penchant for memorable verbal formulations & social critique – & if he weren't a comic strip character – he might be something like the Kit Robinson of this volume. "The world is the case / It's a brief case." The book's almost too smart for me to diminish it with a "great fun."
