Reviews

"Fast is a great book about the nature of social life in the 21st century, a book in which past and future unfold in "every cell'' across the vast space of a few words." -- The New York Times Book Review

"A fascinating mosaic that explores what it means to live and die at a time when technology is redefining our existence......moving...[an] important book." -- Washington Post

"Graham's lush, pulsing lyrics sweep across unusually wide pages in her signature style of reach and embrace, her language surging with passion yet shaped with precision. Each of Graham's poems is a daring voyage...leaving readers exhilarated and transformed." -- Booklist (starred review)

"In poems both complicated and inventive, [Graham] constructs and deconstructs her core ideas through multilayered words and phrasings, compelling readers to feel what it's like to be human in a posthuman world...stunning." -- Library Journal (starred review)
