I would like to thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for my advanced copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

This collection of poems brings cityscapes to life. Emotions and the nature of a city can mimic each other - who would've thought

The poems ooze the love the author feels for cities like New York, London, and Dublin. She doesn't sugarcoat them. She presents them raw and vulnerable. There is admiration and hate. There is praise and criticism. Prikryl does an excellent job drawing parallels between the inner workings of a large urban metropolis and the readers (and her own) inner emotional turmoil. Her descriptions of places by utilizing phrases we associate with illustrating emotions worked perfectly for this collection and seemed unusual to me. I will be reading more of her work in the future.
