Needs Improvement is a book of a new logic making its way from witty statements to slow-moving lyric villanelles, achieving brilliantly a contemporary sense of streaming among words, places and 'no self.'--Nicole Brossard

Whether misreading sixth grade pedagogical materials or offering visual schematics for reading Jacques Foucault and Judith Butler, Jon Paul Fiorentino's sixth poetry collection asks us to reconsider our engagement with received information--but it does so with a wink in the detention room, a dodgeball to the gut during recess.
