Reviews / Endorsements



“In Monica Youn’s stunningly imaginative series Ignatz, George Herriman’s comic-strip villainous mouse, Ignatz, is demoused and, with inexhaustible invention, transformed into an object of passion—not necessarily Krazy Kat’s passion, this time, but definitely crazy. Here, in fact, Ignatz is less an object than a figure of life’s heartbreakingly attractive, elusively multiple possibilities... Spare, choice, witty, daring, musical, itself never tiring, Youn’s style is more than equal to both the romanticism and the grimness.”—Cal Bedient

“…No poet of Youn's generation has made more demands on herself-- and none has done more in her art.”—Stephen Burt

From the Book:

Then one day she noticed the forest had begun to bleed into her waking life
