I have never seen anyone use words the way McGlynn does.  This book blew my mind with every poem.  An absolutely amazing collection especially if you’re looking for something unlike any other.

— Emily

"These are poems with teeth and tenderness and so much knowledge. You'd overlook their sharp, glinting beauty at your peril."
--Kathryn Nuernberger, author of The Witch of Eye and RUE

This is a book of tragicomic gurlesque word-witchery inspired by the Kate Bush cosmos. Campily glamorous, darkly funny, obsessively ekphrastic, boozily baroque, psychedelically girly & musically ecstatic, 50 Things Kate Bush Taught Me About the Multiverse dazzles as Karyna McGlynn's third collection.
