One of the most unusual and persuasive books of poems Ive read in some time. Dwight Garner,New York Times

In a flurry of ideas, and with her typically sparse and open-ended lines, Minnis approaches her subject from a dizzying array of angles: ironic, celebratory, mournful, panicked, and often funny. Publishers Weekly

Chelsey Minniss new collection of poems follows the struggle of a flawed character in a cinematic world. Playing with old ideas of wealth and love from Holly woods golden era, these poems flirt with nostalgia without ever succumbing to it, casting a new light on the present through the fantasies of the past.

Finally, here's love.
