New Review of DOLL STUDIES: FORENSICS

HTML Giant calls Doll Studies “surreal and smart,” and writes “Despite its intellectual inclinations, this collection is far from dry. In an interview with for Seattle Star, Guess explains that these poems “do something very different from factual research…Above all, I was working with sound, with music. I hope readers can engage with the sound of the poems even without knowing the facts of the individual cases.” Indeed, the sense of simultaneous dread and wonder that is created by Guess’s gory and uncanny imagery is supported by the quality of her language….With research, whimsy, and pathos, Guess has created a strange and wonderful world in this book.” Read the entire wonderful review here, and buy a copy of this remarkable book here.
