Editorial Reviews

Review

“I like these dirty poems.” —Eileen Myles

Review

“‘It is not a movement, or a camp or a clique.’ So writes Arielle Greenberg in her introduction to the phenomenon now to be known as ‘the Gurlesque.’ So what is it? Think theory in fishnets, think beyond camp, think cute with claws, Plath with humor, passivity without pathos, think pink with a gun. Gurlesque is a sensibility and a style, a walking panic attack, a threat and a promise. Don't just read this book, ingest it, become it, perform it!” (Judith Jack Halberstam)

Just because you mock it doesn't mean you don't respect it. "Gurlesque: The New Grrls, grotesque, burlesque poetics" Is a collection of poems, short plays and stories as eighteen female writers come together under one cover and provide a humorous, insightful book that is by no means lady like but is none the less valuable and insightful. "Gurlesque" is a solid and very highly recommended read for any poetry reader or women's studies reader.

Following the legacy of the riot grrl movement this punky, grunge-and-glitter collection crackles with energy! Don't pass it up if you want a real jolt!

The combination of Greenberg's introduction/discussion of the Gurlesque and the collection of works from contemporary writers is highly stimulating. Nice range of creative work as well.
