This is a brief review because I am a little burned out on writing for the day, I’ve gotten over eight pages and three poems done today, be kind to my poor little fingers.
I fell in love with Mateer’s writing on the first page. Coincidentally enough, I started reading her work while I was waiting for a very late date (he showed up an hour and fifteen late, I’d already split to finish the book at home and brood).
Her imagery and emotion are incredible; if you’d like to know more about my favorite elements, you can view my highlights here. Her writing speaks for itself.
I’d definitely say that her writing has feminist themes; she writes a lot on sex, loss, and family.
I give this book a solid 9/10, I would definitely recommend it!
