“‘I wanted to be high, but now I’m trapped in my life.’ Frustrated by the limits of his world, Partyknife’s youthful speaker wears a mask of aloofness that incompletely conceals his yearning. His poems strain to hold his exuberance, and his studied detachment belies his racing heart. ‘Everything I hated has become my life now. By which I mean how happy I am.’ These poems are angry, insistent, and wildly in love with life.”—Sarah Manguso
