What: This volume collects Elaine Equi's poems from more than two decades. The poems are, delightfully, mostly focused on the consumption of popular culture. This, and their witty tone, means they are rocky good fun.
Comparable to: Heaven help us, one reviewer described Equi's work as "sassy." Don't do that.
Representative quote: "History/ makes/ many bad movies."
You might not like it if: You look to poetry for contemplations of nature. Not much nature here.
How to get it: In print; buying online might be your best bet.
