A review of The Miraculous by Louis Bury at the always-interesting Hyperallergic. The piece is titled “Fables from Artlandia” and opens with a quote from poet Charles Olson: “There has been, is too much of everything, including knowledge, because it has not been winnowed.”
I will be signing copies of The Miraculous and reading from the book at Kijidome Gallery in Boston at 6 PM on Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014. The gallery is located at 59 Wareham Street, Unit 1A, Boston, MA 02118 in Boston’s South End.

Stephen Maine has written a review of The Miraculous at artcritical.com titled “In All their Wonderful Weirdness: Raphael Rubinstein’s Personal Revisionist Dictionary of Art.”
First published in 2007 as part of Ubuweb’s “Unpublishable” series, “Through a Blue Field” is a poem I wrote in the first half of the 1990s. The “M.B.” in the poem is guitarist Michael Bloomfield (1943-1981).
