What People are Saying About This

Terrance Hayes

"Douglas Kearney's innovative new collection makes me tremble like a 'mouth and mind full of fish hooks.' It makes me think of the despair at the heart of ecstasy; of restlessness as a kind of anodyne. These poems literally vibrate with Kearney's precocious intellect and passion. They hum, they bang,, they bite. This is a jaw-dropping, electrifying book. What else can I Say? I have never encountered poetry like this before."
