From Charles: What's the best book you read in the first half of 2005?

For me it was a three-way tie between Catherine Barnett's Into Perfect Spheres Such Holes are Pierced, Richard Siken's Crush, and Kathleen Flenniken's "Famous" which is still in manuscript. Barnett's book came out in 2004, I believe, but I didn't read it till 2005.

Crush is in my top 3 list too. My ONLY complaint is the production. I don't think Yale did honor to this book. The book is too small, and the font size is too small. The poems seem crammed on the page, and there isn't enough white space. These poems need to breath, and I feel like they're being strangled!
