A unique collection juxtaposing and interweaving essays, reviews, and poetry, by which Alan Davies has created a self-revealing form that is tonal critical commentary: a radical crossing of borders between discursive, social perception, and poetry. The text skates up to itself in sometimes utter simplicity, revealing itself/himself.
Praise for Candor
Davies’ belief in radical self-reflexivity has led him, in the course of his writing career, from a virtually opaque formalism to a continuity of text and life-world that is anything but aesthetic construction.
