Synopses & Reviews
Poetry. "In these intensely female, lively luscious songs it's Colette meets Beyonce meets Lil Mama meets Cixous and in comes Kristeva meets Molly Bendall meets Gail Wronsky, and therefore streams continual surprise--eros kisses big bad boogie man theory and 'word as noose' slang jumpstarts high-flown lingo and it's all so playful and yet deadly serious--how these poems issue from one urgent, collective, Medusa-like mouth, one it's high time is heard"--Gillian Conoley.
A collection of serious and humorous experimental poetry with allusions to fashion, art, popular culture, music, and literary theory, written by two established women poets.
