  1. Abraham Hyatt Abraham Hyatt says:

    This is the most disturbing book of poetry I've ever read It's also one of the best Teare has a voice unlike anyone; he twists language in a way that defies description I go to back to the opening poem Circa again and again just for the joy of watching him do some of his best magic in the space of a single page

  2. Katie McCleary Katie McCleary says:

    heartbreaking and gorgeous poetry

    gut punch

    Haunting and beautiful Brian Teare's language and rhythm in this book about his childhood builds momentum to the height of fear I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone

  5. Rebecca Valley Rebecca Valley says:

    I liked the early fairytale like sections of this book best but appreciated the biblical depictions of gay romance the appearance of many varied and horrifying rooms the way trauma flashed in and out even in moments of love My only ualm was with some confusion around who the narrator was in certain sections and the seemingly arbitrary numbering of some passages

    This isn't one of those poetry books that cloaks riddles in enigmas or tries to be sparse and spare so you fill in the good bits on your own If anything it's baroue too much Too much Bruno Bettelheim too much reliance on linguistic terms as metaphors for for other things too many thesaurus words too many em dashes But the careful weighting and echoing of words is there It sounds well The best poem is the one that led me to the book The Word Cock the Sublime and the book is entirely worth finding just for that

  7. Nikki Nikki says:

    This book is written from three autobiographical perspectives those of a young male victim of incest young girls and a male prostitute in the South Interesting but this writing is THICK and full of metaphor overly descriptive That I find boring but that's just me
