Authentic, graphic descriptions of female adolescence. Gatwood's rich evocations of trips, trysts, and traps reveal uncertainty and bewilderment shading into purpose and clarity, the poems themselves becoming odes. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

Finally, a book for Valentine's AND Galentine's. I've read some of these aloud on a date, and they set the mood *quite* nicely. A tantalizing read to be savored at leisure. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus

An older man is ready to leap off the cliff, but never does. The self-doubt, self-pity, and self-hatred that propelled him to the precipice morph into self-lacerating poetry, and, gazing into the abyss, he stands his ground. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

When I say these are poems about love, I mean these are poems about the envy you feel for your lover's attachment to the dog, the love-poem you imagine being written about you, odes to the way red lipstick can raise you from the grave. When I say this is a book for everyone who's ever thought about love, I mean your relationship status is Read this Book. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus

One Black Mirror episode featured a digital imprint taken of your brain, which was then converted into its own sentient being, able to understand you completely. This book is the analog version of that. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus

“Forgive my bluntness, but... Goddamn, Sam Sax can write some poems. Ross Gay” And he can. There are some fabulous images. He just explores what it was/is to be him in raw and coarse language. Each section is prefaced with three types of monsters. He then takes his version of them and not the mythological versions we know. Yet, they are not far off. He gives us his stories. He gives us a look into this world. He gives us some amazing, harsh things to think about. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
