liked it

I received this book from Goodreads First Reads. It definitely was reading out of my comfort zone. Like any compilation book, it had stories and poems that resonated with me more than others. I especially enjoyed "A Trip to the Slaughterhouse" and "Who Are You Carrying That Rose For". It took me quite awhile to get through but I think it was because I had to reread several some passages several times. I would be interested to know more about each author especially as to gender.
