"Equi seems to know all our foibles and, instead of edging toward the door, reports the latest developments with precise, loving equanimity. Her voice is unique, poised, witty, intimate, and somehow interstellar. It's as if she's visiting from a future where we all appear transparent. Click and Clone is an electrified pleasure field."Â Aram Saroyan"Spick and span, cut and dry, shake and bake, and now Elaine Equi introduces Click and Clone. These poetically altered texts punch holes into the multiverses of pop and splendor, short and longing, prose and dreams. Equi says that art can no longer imitate life, it just needs to keep up. As they might say at the racetrack, she leads by a verse."Â Charles BernsteinClick and Clone explores American life as it has been altered by our technological revolution. Elaine Equi's style is sophisticated, yet always accessible and truly democratic in approach. Whether she is writing about art, pop culture, consumerism, or reality TV, Equi does so with clarity and wit.specs . . .dots . . .bytes . . .atoms . . .scraps . . .snippets . . .tweets . . .Some are wholeas seeds contain a wholegalaxy of fruitand vegetable planetswithin them.Elaine Equi's last book Ripple Effect was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award and on the short list for Canada's Griffin Poetry Prize.
