Yes, this is a photo of Maggie Nelson, author of Wave Book, Bluets. Jeffrey Cyphers Wright reviews the book in the current ish of Brooklyn Rail. His reviews begins as such, "Maggie Nelson gives me a boinker. Her brain and her pussy are both talking in this genre-busting hybrid." Hmm, did he just say "boinker" and "pussy" in the first two sentences of his review? I've read a fair share of bad reviews (maybe even have written a few) but this review has got to be the worst ever, right? What do you think? Have you read a worst review? Read the rest of it here.
Then head over to Galatea Resurrects and read a bunch of top-notch reviews of poetry books primarily published by small presses. Hell yeah!
