Reviews

Ampleman's poems are the product of an extraordinary DNA splicing, combining the genetic material of Rilke, Dorothy Parker, Sir Thomas Wyatt, and--as evidenced in her collection's masterful showpiece--Courtney Love. Ampleman merges formal elegance with punk sass and offers both a witty debunking of romantic love in all of its manifestations and heartfelt expressions of ardor. There's consummate ingeniousness here--and formidable promise--David Wojahn, author of World Tree, winner of the Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize
In these wry, warm, learned, and formally dexterous poems, we find ourselves caught up in love--its twists, its turns, its fickleness, its fevers, its griefs, its unexpected happy endings. There's a shock of pleasure on every page of this delightful book; as Ampleman asks, '[W]hat else do you expect from Love?'--Melissa Range, author of Scriptorium, winner of the National Poetry Series competition
