"Flux" is everything a significant debut should be--the arrival of
a fresh, confident voice with an extraordinary range of form,
direction and style.
From a sequence that captures the art and vocabulary of commercial
fishing with careful precision, Denham bursts into a free-flowing
and varied narrative based on the angst-ridden and picaresque life
of a hitchhiking, cigarette-scrounging West Coast university
student. Between these poles, Flux draws on Denham's broad palette
of expression to evoke the various shades of urban life: house
fires, street life, garbage strikes, disturbing and life-affirming
revelations of young love, and friends and relatives possessed by
drugs, child abuse and suicide.
All of this leads to "Two Waters," Denham's brilliant long poem
painstakingly laying out the natural beauty and geography of the
small coastal town he grew up in and its transformation into
"Memories rippling/ On the periphery of vision between clean new
buildings . . . Stripmalls. Traffic. Suburbia's/ Low-swell panic
moving in . . ."
