CRUDELY MISTAKEN FOR LIFE by Wolfgang Carstens
This will be the first review ( and maybe the last) in this zine as I figured others could do it better and I wanted to leave this space for poetry. That was before I finished Wolfgang’s first book Crudely Mistaken for Life. In this book he leads the reader on a journey of life, death, and the beauty and pain caught in between. The work may give a hint of more famous poets, but leaves no doubt this is new, fresh and uniquely Carstens’ poetry.
If I were to write a book of poetry I would strive for this.
And inside these 80 pages you will find some truth, maybe yourself. I’ll trade $15.50 for that any day.
