Editorial Reviews


“In kinship with the patterns and compulsions of Ramirez, Darger, Klee, and with her own Frost-like propensity for cellar holes and lilacs, Peary charges an already charged landscape with dazzling significance.”—Emily Wilson, judge, 2013 Iowa Poetry Prize

“To read this book is to be in a world at once as thin as the page and as deep as consciousness, where experience is both available and private, and language is engagingly transparent and richly dark.”—Laura Mullen

Control Bird Alt Delete is a great book. It’s descriptive, poetic, interior, and technological, often within the same sentence. But it’s firmly located in an American present of rest areas, stores we all know, and ‘men made entirely of denim.’ And it sounds great; Peary’s music is just beautiful.”—Matthew Rohrer

About the Author

Alexandria Peary is the author of two previous books of poetry, Fall Foliage Called Bathers & Dancers (2008) and Lid to the Shadow (2011). The latter was selected for the 2010 Slope Editions Book Prize. She is an associate professor at Salem State University in Massachusetts.
