"Daisy Fried's poetry is fluid and quicksilver as life seen close up. Here is an original voice: provocative, poignant, and often very funny."
--Joyce Carol Oates
"Fried's vivacious sophomore effort is a breath of pure oxygen for the serious, politically engaged, unpretentious free-verse storytelling so popular in American poetry a generation ago and in eclipse since. Winningly personal, the poems are nevertheless artful, with a light touch to balance their heavy subjects of social and racial injustice."
"The satirical tone here is delicious and the social observation is shrewd."
