EMU Creative Writing student Vanessa Janowski reviews the recent BathHouse reading featuring Christian Bök:
Christian Bök came to Eastern Michigan University on October 19th 2010 at 6:30 pm in the Sponberg Theater. The presentation was an hour long and was very interesting to listen to. Bök did some readings from his book titled Eunoia. Eunoia is the shortest word in the American dictionary to use all vowels. The sections he picked to present were more humorous to listen to, rather than when I read the book. I was able to appreciate the reading better, and it was easier to follow compared to reading it by myself. Bök then recited some sound poems, which were impressive as to how fast he was able to say them without pausing/messing up. I am glad I went to this Reading Event, for I learned to appreciate and to enjoy listening to Bök perform.
