  • By Irene Vallone -

    Subverted my expectations in a way that I’m still considering, almost a week later, whether or not I appreciated. I was expecting a more explicit account of the poet’s relationship to gender; what I read was somehow even more personal, and left a real emotional impression on me in a way that a lot of similar poetry has failed to do.
