Description


Reliably sharp and entertaining. Duhamel's knack for blending tones--especially the personal and sociological, the ludicrous and the horrifying, the silly and the pathetic--gives poem after poem its distinctive and unforgettable character.

Praise For…


“Duhamel’s blunt, occasionally playful voice is versatile . . . Although long lines and expository prose blocks dominate this collection, the poet’s lyricism emerges in moments when she employs traditional form in surprising ways. Duhamel . . . has written some of the first poetry to deeply register the current economic crisis.”
—Publishers Weekly

“This is the wildest, most honest book of poetry written in a long time. The various forms Duhamel uses prove that her imagination is keen and totally unpredictable. Dominated by prose poems, the book ranges across every contemporary worry, obsession, and conflict possible. The result is a voice that brings solutions to the challenges of everyday life while investigating how language rebuilds hope in a troubled and chaotic time.”
—The Bloomsbury Review

“Duhamel is a wily technician, a touching humanist, a poet deserving stardom.”
