[Lia Purpura] evinces great skill as a prose writer in this volume of meditations on nature and society. . . . Amid the numerous essay collections driven by concern over climate change, Purpura’s stands out for its passionate intensity.
‘Dear Delinquent’ was Edna St. Vincent Millay’s address to her lover, and Townsend’s newest collection—by turns erotic and elegiac—continues in Millay’s passionate lyric tradition. Full of the sensual delights, Townsend explores the (sometimes uneasy) ways in which heartache lives alongside pleasure. A child’s joyful maturation alleviates the tragedy of a lost child, the powerful undertow of sex supersedes the hurt of infidelity. Like the mare who ‘only knows the present tense,’ we rally, ‘testing with [our] teeth’ the flimsy boxes that attempt to hold us.
— Paisley Rekdal
Joe Sacksteder’s MAKE/SHIFT is a marvelously inventive book, formally restless, endlessly playful even at its bleakest, a Rube Goldberg machine of experimental fiction artfully hammered together out of high school traumas, late capitalist ephemera, and insider jokes about Werner Herzog. This is a book of feints and swerves and surprises, a debut collection that takes real risks and delivers real rewards.
— Matt Bell, author of SCRAPPER
