Reviews

CAConrad always argues (from the inside of their poems) for a poetry of radical inclusivity while keeping a very queer shoulder to the wheel. Their kind of queerness strikes me as nonpolarizing, not intentionally but because of the fullness of their exposition, a kind of gigantism that seems to me to be most deeply informed by love, and a tenderness for the ravages and tumult of existence.
--Eileen Myles


At a time when I don't always know how to make sense of what's going on, CAConrad serves as a cleareyed seer.
--Jillian Steinhauer, New York Times
