Reviews
[These poems] are extraordinary--electric with anxiety, smart, witty, constantly turning on themselves...I love this book.--Marie Howe, author of Magdalene
4:30 Movie is a fiercely energetic collection, thematically and formally unified...The intensity of this book is something new, as the speaker confronts the terrifying and unstoppable progress of her sister's illness, and watches her own grief, the gestures she makes to try to ward off fear and loss, and her own distractibility...Formally, Masini has reimagined the way her poems work, and the results are thrilling, and often startling.--Mark Doty, author of Deep Lane
