touch of eloquence that's hard to find these days in poets. Every poem
is amazing and each lines delivers a message. Beautiful writing and I
recommend it to all: "You're in a car with a beautiful boy, and
you're trying to tell him that you love him, and you're trying to choke
down the feeling, and you're trembling, but he reaches over and he
touches you, like a prayer for which no words exist, and you feel your
heart taking root in your body, like you've discovered something you
don't even have a name for." - You Are Jeff

A secret thrill!
This book is so rich in evil love. Richard Siken is like a way better Stephanie Meyer without the fangs but with blood and soul. It's like reading for the first time. I can't describe it. It's see seeing into someone's soul, foul and beautiful, painful and tender. I'd give this book 10 stars if I had it. I can't even imagine how he will top himself. This book is a show-stopper.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Sorry- I'm still speechless and jealous that this voice did not come from my own mind. Wow. So real - so right-the-hell now - so totally twisted yet identifiable and not at all gruesome. Did I already say wow? I am reading it slowly for the second time and it feels like I'm seeing it all for the first time. Deliscious- like a bite-into-a fleshy-dirty-sweet fruit -deliscious. I love it!!!!!!!!!! What is the limit on exclamation points - I need to exceed it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Awesome piece of art. It's like all the words you realize you should have said- all the ways you could express sarcasm and - Wowz. I'm sorry - I feel retarded after reading this - like my own words are no good anymore. Louise Gluck wrote the foreword with equal difficulty. In order to speak about the book or describe it - you become tempted to quote the entire book. The only true description of the book is the book itself.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
