"There has never been a poetry quite like this before, so passionately and understandably barbaric . . . And, withal, stormily beautiful, at the border where beauty tolerates the sublime."—Calvin Bedient, Parnassus

Reviews / Endorsements




"Tory Dent's second book establishes her as a necessary, unparalleled voice in American writing. She takes the Whitmanian line, soars and plummets with it to the heights and depths of extremity. Speaking from the interior of a consciousness immutably transformed by AIDS, our millennial plague, she enunciates and elucidates all human despair, in a language elegant and extravagant enough to become, in itself, a kind of redemption." —Marilyn Hacker
