“In Conrad’s world the parameters are deliberately unknowable because that is the nature of our time. In piecing together, configuring and releasing [their] extreme miniatures—agonized fables, poems about America. CAConrad includes us all in the enormous outside of [their] heart. Which is the world in all its possibility.” Eileen Myles review of The Book of Frank
