Press & Reviews

Cavernous and electric, DaDaDa unfolds as a hypnotically twisted love tome investigating the r/elation between language systems and the erotics of communication. Plotting the truncated lives of letters, as mistresses, matrices, vessels, vials, viols, vile induces, indices, Catherine Daly’s passionate tripartite tour de force rages with linguistic virtuosity as a “cross-stitched sampler” of contemporary culture, “hot sync simulacra,” literary heresies. — Adeena Karasick Seldom is such a commodious pathway opened with a first book. It is, as its author says, “Huge toroid / experiments.” She’s right about that; look up “toroid.” Catherine Daly is the “epideictic girl” of her verse’s universe. Any book that places Georgia O’Keefe in the same neighborhood with Ann Corio has a thing or two to tell us about telling, about “deep regional feeling,” about aboutness.
—Aldon L. Nielsen
