Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In probing "Unstable Singularities," keeping a "Rendezvous in Greenwich" or contemplating "A High Cold Bright Full Moon," Jenny Factor's speaker in Unraveling at the Name finds "Our sexuality takes form only after some interpreting." In 37 formal lyrics (some in multiple, time-shifting parts), that maxim is full borne out, as marriage, motherhood, the past, various sex acts and varying complexions come under scrutiny. While a voice warns that "a marriage and the stiff form of all heterosexual culture will fall on you like starch," Factor's speaker cheerfully executes "orgiastic shifts in key."
