I went over to the Bowery Poetry Club last week to see Janice Erlbaum do that thing she does. And indeed, she does it so well! Erlbaum, aka Girlbomb just published, appropriately enough, Girlbomb: A Halfway Homeless Memoir. It' s an engaging read. Erlbaum is equally adept at writing and performing and always delivers an entertaining performance. She read a "found poem" from a bathroom wall. I have noticed that words in an odd order can be downright scary, and as Girlbomb demostrated by reading this treasure found in New Rochelle, words that are not quite grammatically correct can be very amusing... She also presented the work of a sexually uninhibited, twenty-three year-old Janice who seemed defiant and sure. Perhaps this calls for a sequel to her fine, first book...
