What People are Saying About This

Brenda Shaughnessy

“One way to do something is to invent an infinite way to do it. Montes takes identity and multiplies it by multiplicity, then divides it by the power of one. Readers get to experience much more than wordplay or ordinary verse–reversals; rather we ride the book like a centaur, a pegasus. Montes has a high–flying new style and a rock–solid intelligence, and so much gorgeous sky in between those two qualities. All of which imbue his ontological quandaries, queries and quaking with such wild and vertiginous pleasure.”
—Brenda Shaughnessy, Our Andromeda

Mark Bibbins

“Roberto Montes is thoroughly keen for and vexed by bodies in the world, and how we are forever figuring out how to get to touch them. It seems a wonder that he can fit his giant matrix of feelings about bodies–not just discrete human ones, but governments, water, knowledge–into this container you’e holding. The ways he makes them fit might break your heart a little (“sadness is capable of great acts of beauty”). I Don't Know Do You investigates great beauties and smaller ones too–all moving, necessary, and real.”
—Mark Bibbins, The Dance of No Hard Feelings
