A Kolourmeim Chapbook

 

[He] is a writer of mysterious content. There is something here of a kind of Gothic poetry, yet it is Gothic-sexual-surrealist. If I think of Auden's early work The Orators, it is to suggest a likeness and not an influence: Nealon derives from nobody but himself. Strange appeals are made with strange motivations, by moonlight as it were, but are couched in oddly reasonable terms.
