Pain-proof Men in Freefall Magazine

Here is a snippet of the review in Freefall (21.1):

"The title poem, 'Pain-proof Men,' which is in part about the fakir who gives both the poem and the book its title (the title is a literal translation of the word fakir), provides the book with both a mantra and a solid pun; 'In here,' notes one speaker, 'you'll find no fakers!' (70) True to this line, Pain-proof Men is for the most part a very earnest, observational book about the intermingling of the other-worldly and the everyday."
