Blurbs, Press, & Reviews
“An extraordinary debut…a work of rare beauty and thoughtfulness.”
—Publishers Weekly , starred review
“Luxury, Blue Lace stay[s] in the reader’s mind long after the final page”
—The Adroit Journal
“Expansive, generous, deeply considered, and highly lyric, this book, with its transformations and overlaps, astounds.”
—Richard Siken, author of Crush
“At once luxuriously lyric and theoretically rich, attuned to the heady ambivalence of gender, genre, and time…”
—Cameron Awkward-Rich, author of Sympathetic Little Monster
“The poems linger beautifully on these delicate, precise precipices of knowing and unknowing, and the wet mouth of the desire to remake, never tipping over into folly or disarray.”
—Dawn Lundy Martin, author of Good Stock Strange Blood
