"This book is dark and electric with all the immediate, physical anxiety of being female and, beyond that, human. It's a totally fascinating downward spiral through sex and television and pills and blogging and love and alcohol, strangers and friends and despair, all knit together with tender emotional realness."
- Michelle Tea, author of VALENCIA
"With her mixture of immediate honesty and everyman wit, Boyle has emerged as a cult voice of Millennials whom have come of age sharing confessional writing online."
- Kelley Hoffman, Elle
"...unbelievably engaging and mesmerizing. Boyle writes with such openness about living in a world that constantly mystifies you [...] I can't think of another book quite like it, can't think of a voice as distinctive and strange as Boyle's."
- Kevin Wilson, author of THE FAMILY FANG
"Just reading this collection, [Megan Boyle] immediately became one of my favorite modern poets."
- Benn Ray, WYPR's The Signal
"[O]ne of the funniest, most satisfying, most original, most satisfying books of poetry I've come across in years."
- Rachel Whang, Atomic Books
"[A] blunt work that challenges the reader, dares the reader to find out what this woman has on her mind. Boyle exhibits a generous exhibitionist quality that leaves one wondering if she might be the next Laurie Anderson."
- Nicolle Elizabeth, The Brooklyn Rail
"[T]he first book I've ever read that truly represents the strangely compelling way people reveal themselves, in writing, on the Internet."
- Jay Gabler, Twin Cities Daily Planet
"[A] remarkable debut [...] both painstaking and unpolished, earnest and unassuming, plain, poetic, moving, self-conscious and, above all, real."
- Jennifer Shaffer, The Stanford Daily
"[A] type of honesty far more true and grim than Tina Fey-style witty self-deprecation."
- Becky Lang, The Tangential
"★★★★★" "Highly recommended"
- GianCarlo DiTrapano, New York Tyrant
"Whatever fuck it I like it."
- Victor Vazquez, Das Racist
"Funny, moving, gross, rakish, sexy, astute."
- K. Silem Mohammad
