thin little arms build castles - valerie webber

thin little arms build castles (big baby books 2006) by valerie webber


webber's first solo book in four years! this collection features 14 new poems.

"webber has hit a new mark w/ this book of poems. they glower w/ a savage steaminess that recalls (in part) some of lydia lunch's best work. but she does not have lydia's vicious nihilism. valerie's possesses a strangely juicy optimism as often as it does darkness, and there is a humour poking through many of the pieces, letting in illuminative shards of light" : byron coley & thurston moore, bull tongue review. top 80 of 2006.
