Praise For A Woman is a Woman is a Woman is a Woman

"For a good time call Marie Antoinette, Cleopatra, Catherine the Great, Bonnie Parker or just read Chrys Tobey's A Woman is a Woman is a Woman is a Woman. These are boisterous poems, well-crafted poems that just won't behave. Outrageous, shifty, smart poems that remind us that slapstick and pain are kissing cousins. Where surprise keeps popping up, and just when you start to laugh, they break your heart."

--Richard Garcia

 

"Chrys Tobey's A Woman is a Woman is a Woman is a Woman, is a boo which Gertrude Stein's roses and Freud's cigar collide. Theses witty, poignant poems--ecofeminist in their approach, abundant in their gestures and forms--engage our cultural moment while reimagining the world's flawed history that got us here. Anaphora abounds, building, then subverting, then building again. The personas of her 'bitch goddesses' will make you laugh and rethink everything."

--Denise Duhamel

 

"The poems is Chrys Tobey's debut book, A Woman is a Woman is a Woman is a Woman,, are inventive, bold, deft, funny, dark, and sensual. This book of poems is a magnificent ride, first poem to last. Tobey's is a wlsome, warm, edgy, smart new voice with a keen eye for the oddity and displacement we humans warp our way through. She shows us how to do it--to get from there to here and back again. This is a book to cherish."

--Carol Potter
