“Here comes a juicy volley of some of the most obstreperous, ill-behaved, ill-advised, detrimental, dismantling, dismaying poems out there – and I do mean ‘out there.’ The double introduction signals right away that the Gurlesque is nothing as centralized or self-confirming as a ‘movement,’ but Glenum and Greenberg make a potent case for the persistence of resistance in all its distributed, multitudinous, mutant and deviating femme and/or female forms.” (Joyelle McSweeeney)
More About the Author
The Huffington Post recently named Maximum Gaga as "one of the superlative books of poetry of the last ten years." Writing about Pop Corpse, critic David B. Applegate calls Glenum's work "a splattered fairy tale for today, a new flavor of poetic candy, and, ultimately, a pleasure to read."
The recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship, she has also been an NEA Translation Fellowship partner. She is currently an Associate Professor of English at LSU, where she is one of the directors of Delta Mouth, a national literary festival.
