Praise for Ossip

"It may be the case that Ossip understands the elasticity and capaciousness of contemporary poetry better than anybody. . . .  This is our book."

“Unassuming and masterfully crafted, Ossip’s poetry is sneaky, very often disguising itself as easy and surprising you the moment you let your guard down. . . . The Do-Over is a kind of elegy to contemporary culture: it critiques modern life while basking in its ever-younger, glitzier rabble."
The Paris Review

“Ossip conjures delightful and unexpected muses…shrewd and ambitious.”
New York Times Book Review

 “The poet has an uncanny ability to convey what it actually feels like to be alive today…Ossip is one of our foremost ethnographers of contemporary unreality.”
The Believer
