Author of he'll

"I'm reading Margaret Christakos's Multitudes, a poetry collection that's simultaneously nostalgic for the analogue past and euphoric about the digital future. That said, it feels as though I'm re-reading the book, because Christakos composes a witty counterpoint to Walt Whitman. The first section begins with a line from Leaves of Grass -- "sing the body electric" -- and the last section ends with lines of Facebook status updates. In between, the public language of online communication contrasts the private language of communicating with a mother who survived a stroke. Christakos writes for Twitter followers and the literati alike -- in other words, the 'Twitterati.'"
