I inhaled this collection in just one day, and was just blown away. A phenomenal kinetic intensity underlies each of these poems, whether Krakovic is plumbing the depths of sexual psyche or gleefully experimenting with typography. A strong feminist strain pulls the book together, and her facility with imagery and symbolism makes the words leap with energy. Now I can't wait to read Krakovic's new collection, which is due sometime later in 2012.
