Forrest Gander is A Strange Guy

Have just about finished reading Forrest Gander's new book, and I must say it is elliptical, but with some kind of "realistic"/ "realism" cut up element to it. "A history of violence" is a series of poems where a criminal mind remembers the night and we as readers almost have to put it together for him. I don't think the collection as a whole lives up to the first few poems, but I am interested enough to follow up and find out more about him. Disclaimer, I know nothing about this guy at the moment !
