Editorial Reviews

Review

Jennifer Perrine is a poet of formal agility and surprise, with a command of language that ranges from the spare to the luxuriously rampant, from the scientific to the ecstatic. --Betsy Sholl

In these lusciously languaged poems, Perrine is as grimly witty in grief as in joy, and The Body Is No Machine is a dazzling debut collection. --Cynthia Hogue

Seduced by words, this poet thinks with her whole body. Gender bends so far the barriers between us and within us shift and change. --Peggy Shumaker

Worth every penny. Apparently I haven't used enough words, so I have to drone one about a book that needs no praise. Yay, society!
