Editorial Reviews


Julia Cohen's speaker, 'chalky / from / banged up / stars,' addresses the sticky stuff of existence from all sides, from that '[t]ender veil of the buffering field.' This book is full of arrows. Some pierce, some direct, some 'snap in half and form an X to mark the animal inside that animal / alive & yelping through the skin.' Or we re shot through by being persons. Cohen won't heal, but will direct us in our grief, our weird grief shot through with pleasure. 'I can't just sit here with feelings.' If you lose your grip on this book, if you slice your hand as the vanes pass through, hold tight as only the busted-beautiful can. ---Danielle Pafunda
