I'm so honored that The Republic of Exit 43 made it to the recommended reading lists for POETRY magazine of two vastly different writers I admire so well. Rachel Blau DuPlessis includes the book among work by my heroes David Antin, Nathaniel Mackey, Anne Tardos, William Corbett, Ariel Reznikoff, Patrick Pritchett, and Carlos Soto Román, saying about it, "her title barely begins to cover the performances, essays, collages, analyses, and rigorous rage within."

CA Conrad included Exit alongside new books by Ari Banias, Julian Talamantez Brolaski, Jos Charles, Don Mee Choi, Allison Cobb, Claudia Cortese, Jennifer Firestone, Adam Fitzgerald, Peter Gizzi, Dan Hoy, Chely Lima, Layli Long Soldier, Hoa Nguyen, Tommy Pico, Stacy Szymaszek, Nikki Wallschlaeger, and Mia You. I'm off to order whatever I don't have!

The book is still on the list of SPD Poetry Bestsellers. We're all so grateful for SPD's support of independent publishing.
