Reviews

"These poems are wise, sexy, well-tuned language machines, full of stinging humor and quick-witted swagger, interrogating the highs and lows of cohabitation and maturation. Simply put, Gloss is masterful--a knockout collection I will continue to read, teach, and learn from for years to come."--Marcus Wicker, author of Silencer
"A masquerade ball of velvety self-portraiture and a subversive parade of cultural norms recast as light kink. This book playacts its anxieties--gender roles and group texts, suburban mansions and contractual commitments--until the violence that underpins them is spotlighted on stage."--Emilia Phillips, author of Empty Clip
"Funny, irreverent, and searingly honest, Hazelton dares to explore the obligations that we have with one another and with ourselves. And who wouldn't want to trust the speaker of these poems? In prickly, worldly, and intimate poems, Hazelton's wit and wisdom urge us to understand beauty in our complicated lives."--Oliver de la Paz, author of Post Subject: A Fable
