I Will Never Be Beautiful Enough To Make Us Beautiful Togetherby Mira Gonzalez
Synopses & Reviews
Mira Gonzalez is a phenomenon of the same breed as Tao Lin: she might actually be the only literary social media presence more prolific and more intense – flitting between her two Twitter accounts, @miragonz and @miraunedited, is a kind of poetry in and of its self and fairly representative of her first collection. Either brutally honest to the point of appearing unhinged or wildly fantastic, but totally engrossing regardless.
—Dazed and Confused
The carefulness and precision and control with which Mira describes intense, uncommon, painful, mysterious experiences in her life made me feel very close to another human being in a way that is rare for me and that caused me to feel calmer and less desperate/despairing about my life.
—Tao Lin, Shoplifting from American Apparel
Mira Gonzalez is doing her thing. I fuck with these poems. I felt bad for her when she talked about how that dude said I'm gonna come on your stomach like 15-20 times and then didn't.
—Victor 'Kool A.D.' Vazquez
Mira Gonzalez's brain spans the weird space between bodies stuffed with Ambien and food and light from porn on laptops in an anxious, calming kind of way, one concerned more with what blood tastes like than how the blood got out. It s messed up and feels honest, open, like lying naked on the floor with your arms chopped off.
—Blake Butler, There Is No Year
