The first review of Monogamy Songs has been published, & it’s in The Monitor, the newspaper based in the Rio Grande Valley. I’m talking about Texas, the part that is so close to Mexico that maybe it is Mexico. This is partly in support of the college visit & reading I will be doing there in late February. The review is very blush blush, & you can read the online version here.
Choice quote: “Distilling vulnerability, depression, sexuality and ennui, his chapbooks and collections give poignant voice to a whole generation of pop-culture-obsessed, cereal-swilling, unmoored young men.”
Over at Monkeybicycle, a short interview led by J.A. Tyler, where I say things like “Monogamy Songs is a hip-hop record. It is Hologram Tupac’s abs. It’s the fuzzy leg feeling when you’re laying in bed with the taste of a little too much NyQuil on the back of your tongue.”
HTMLGIANT does one of their “25 Points” about Monogamy Songs. You can read that here.
Choice cut: “I wonder if I would cry if I did hang out with Gregory Sherl.”
