About the Author

Alex Dimitrov is the author of Together and by Ourselves, Begging for It, and the online chapbook American Boys. With Dorothea Lasky, he is the co-author of Astro Poets: Your Guides to the Zodiac. He lives in New York City


"Full of fierce astonishment, Dimitrov's wide-eyed collection asks us as humans--'Some brutes who screamed / for everything to look at us'--to take a moment and gaze back out at the world. Because "to be queer / is a way to forgive life, ' what we might find there is comfort and pleasure: 'I love opening a window in a room/ I love the feeling of possibility by the end of the first cup of / coffee.' Written with the winking intimacy of a Twitter DM, these poems suggest that even aloneness can be a shared experience." --O, The Oprah Magazine

"Joyous and captivating... Meditations on humanity's search for meaning are handled with wit and vulnerability... In this affecting collection, his most fully achieved thus far, Dimitrov provides the reader with a needed celebration of pleasures."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
