Description


"One of the most unusual and persuasive books of poems I've 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 Minnis's 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 wood's 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.

What do you want with me? I'm just a dirty little shoplifter.
I'm like a woman in a sequined gown in a dark cave. Can you tell me I'm worse than others?
OK, yes, I'm worse than others, but can you say I'm the worst of all?

Chelsey Minnis grew up in Denver. She attended the University of Colorado at Boulder and the Iowa Writers' Workshop. She is the author of Poemland (Wave Books, 2009), Zirconia (Fence Books, 2001), Foxina (Seeing Eye Books, 2002) and Bad Bad (Fence Books, 2007). She lives in Boulder, Colorado. She also writes screenplays.
