Briefly Noted: Rave Reviews for Jenny Johnson and Elena Passarello
- Jenny Johnson receives a starred review for her debut poetry collection In Full Velvet, available February 14, 2017.
"In this stunningly lyrical debut, Johnson probes issues of queer culture and love from an array of existential perspectives, creating a melodic and thought-provoking symphony on queer identity…. [A] miniature opus, alternately joyful and heartrending, achingly bittersweet.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
- Marie Claire and Martha Stewart Living give rave reviews to forthcoming collection of essays by Elena Passarello Animals Strike Curious Poses.
“The essays in Elena Passarello’s Animals Strike Curious Poses are technically about animals you’ll find in history books, but really they’re about the worlds the creatures inhabit and the ways people intersect with them. That, and they’re fiercely fun.” —Marie Claire
“Passarello is brilliant, and these essays exploring famous animals . . . will not disappoint in quirkiness, intelligence, and delight.”
—National Book Foundation Executive Director Lisa Lucas, Martha Stewart Living, “10 Page-Turners for 2017"
