's review

really liked it
bookshelves: female, poetry, and-a-half-stars, year-2000s

in which nobody told me about her but so what I started reading it all the way from the bookstore till I got home. Something about words or signs and what they pointed to, and how pretentious that is, and how like an academic with a tenure track going round and round. But more visceral, in my opinion, more stabby.

Michael Yes!!!! I didn't know her until last year, and read her collected. Absolutely wonderful. Up and down, yes, but overall, like, hey, what a great trip.
