I had the pleasure of listening to Lauren read passages from Lady Be Good in New Haven and decided to finish the entire book. She displayed an exquisite command of imagery and word play, especially in "The Inventor Takes an X-Ray," my favorite poem in the book. This book serves as evidence that Lauren certainly has no problems with the English language in poetry form, and I look forward to more poems and books in the future.

I recommend this book for anyone.
