"I love these poems." --Joe Dunthorne, author of Submarine
Funny, surprising and lyrical, these poems range from the deserts of the Southwest to the abysses of Facebook. From online dating to beauty pageants, Greek mythology to road trips, Leigh Stein gives us resilient young women in longing and in love.
Post-confessional--like Sylvia Plath raised on MTV, or Anne Sexton on Twitter--the poems seduce with a narrative hook or startle with a pop culture reference, all the while wrestling fresh meaning out of our fantasy-saturated modern lives.
Leigh Stein's first novel, The Fallback Plan, was hailed as "beautiful, funny, thrilling, and true" by Gary Shteyngart (Super Sad True Love Story). A former New Yorker staffer and frequent contributor to its "Book Bench" blog, Stein is also the author of the poetry chapbook How to Mend a Broken Heart with Vengeance, and is the winner of the Amy Award from Poets & Writers magazine. She lives in Brooklyn.
