And this in itself is a fair enough assessment, to say the very least, of The Monday Rhetoric of the Love Club, a collection of twenty-one of the prolific Cohen'sparables, prose poems, fables, and dialogues. Two of the pieces, including the title story, originally appeared in the New Directions in Prose and Po etry series; most of the others were selected from the many other magazinesand anthologies in England and the United States in which Cohen's shorter works - some seventy thus far - have been published." (from the dj).
