Editorial Reviews

Review

"The dog. The girl scout in the tornado. Good intentions. There is something of Plath in these domestic meditations. " -- Laura Moriarty

"The sentence is disjointed; the thinking continuous. This is household mechanics. This living; it takes a lifetime." -- C.D. Wright

Review

“Awareness begins at home, “eye level with the cake,” or so one could infer from Sarah Mangold’s Household Mechanics, a disquieting review of indirect disclosures, internal churnings, and palpable notions, subjected to a tense and skeletal language. She probes, evokes but chooses not to describe or elaborate. She ‘pulls across’ which she distinguishes from ‘associating with.’ The voice is consistent, distant. The sentence is disjointed; the thinking continuous.” (C.D. Wright)
