Midwest Book Review on Historic Diary

http://www.midwestbookreview.com/mbw/mar_11.htm

 

Historic Diary

Tony Trigilio

BlazeVox Books

303 Bedford Ave, Buffalo, NY 14216

978160940125, $16.00

 

Lee Harvey Oswald in all of his infamy, proved to be one of the most intriguing characters of the twentieth century. "Historic Diary" is a work of poetry and fiction from Tony Trigilio as he tells a story through his poetry, hoping to show where Oswald's mind wandered and where it went. A truly unique experiment and blend of prose and poetry, "Historic Diary" is a fun and intriguing read that will prove hard to put down.
