Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Elena Georgiou's debut collection of poems unveils the story of a vigorous soul's journey in and out of love. Whether her speaker is buying lunch at a falafel stand or bumping into the ghost of Marvin Gaye in the supermarket, Georgiou's zesty clarity prevails.

Review:

"The debut of a lucid, lusty new voice in American poetry. Honesty is her trademark, tempered by the rolling music of her voice. This book unveils the story of a vigorous soul's journey in and out of love. Whether her speaker is buying lunch at a falafel stand or bumping into the ghost of Marvin Gaye in a supermarket, Georgiou's zesty clarity prevails, sweetened by her impeccable ear and fired, as it always is, by her burning heart. A Cypriot by way of London, now happily a New Yorker, Georgiou fearlessly tackles the raw hungers of friendship and romance with a poetry of rare independence and vulnerability, sass, and sophistication." Molly Peacock

Review:

"This girl rocks the poetry boat." Gerry Gomez Pearlberg

Synopsis:

Marvin Gaye, Bill Clinton, Bob Marley, Monet, and other figures of high and low culture appear in this debut volume of poems written in musical, accessible language about identity — in which sex, race, and politics play a large part.
