At the Adirondack Review, Steven Karl reviews Mark Cunningham's *Body Language* (TSky Press): "Body Language weaves through a brain-scrambling obstacle course not unlike what one perceives pin wheeling through Hunter S. Thompson's imagination.... Damn good.... It’s funny, sad and serious."

At Prick of the Spindle, Cynthia Reeser interviews Mark Cunningham, author of *Body Language* (Tarpaulin Sky Press, 2008): "While not claiming to be a Buddhist, I've always felt there's no such being as a stable self. Different parts of the body want or need different things and relate to the world in different ways. As Deleuze and Guattari point out in Anti-Oedipus, there's ten, a hundred, a thousand men AND women inside each person."

At Prick of the Spindle, Cynthia Reeser reviews Mark Cunningham's *Body Language*: "The appeal of Body Language is universal. Always thought-provoking, always enjoyable and unexpected."
