Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Leah Umansky’s chapbook both celebrates and transcends its subject, the iconic Mad Men television series. You don’t have to love or even know the show to go where Umansky takes us in this scathing dissection of American advertising, pop culture, and gender.

Review:

"...Umansky breaks down words and names familiar to the show. “In My Next Life, I Want to Be an Ad Man” utilizes don and drape as verbs. ”The Times” blends moments from the show into Umansky’s memories, evoking the ways that we can disappear into works of art, the lines between our own recollections and the plots we’ve watched play out slowly blurring. - Tobias Carroll (VOL 1 Brooklyn)

Review:

Don Dreams and I Dream, attacks this pressure-point relentlessly, it is an uncomfortable and impressive read. I laughed and felt guilty for laughing, I was sad without being entirely sure who for, and, above all else, I felt horribly implicated in its central conflicts. Implicated may well seem like an odd term with which to compliment a poetry pamphlet, but much like Mad Men, it is the result of Umansky having the artistic bravery to shoot for big game and the artistic skill to hit the target. -Keiran Goddard SABOTAGE REVIEWS
