Reviews

"In critico-lyrical prose that pops off the page and skips over boundaries with the agility native to its most daring subjects, Devine issues a challenge to his readers: Let us go. Take him up. You won't regret it." --Boris Dralyuk, Executive Editor, Los Angeles Review of Books
"Part prose poem, part mixtape, part mash-up, and part commonplace book, Warhol's Mother's Pantry channel surfs the cultural waves of the long twentieth century as they break on the shores of pop." --Mike Chasar
"Witty, subversive, poetic. This book is a joy to read. M. I. Devine is a writer for our times." --Keith Zarriello, singer-songwriter, The Shivers
"Devine is remarkably successful at arraying a pop cosmology that positions his sources so they can talk to each other, upending chronology and genre such that T.S. Eliot samples Hozier, the Kardashians are trying to keep up with Phillip Larkin's 'selfish' sonnets, and John Donne and Kendrick Lamar speak of God in unison." --Jordana Rosenfeld, Chicago Review of Books
