    1. Sarah Freligh s book comes swathed in blurbs, paragraphs of praise it doesn t need I didn t read them Its cover was enough to prompt me to open the book, to read the first poem that met me SHUT UP, PLEASE,I M SPEAKINGof love You remember We made itonce in a crummy motel near Binghamtonwhile snow fell, four inches in an hour.The curtains gaped, admitting a sliceof light that cut your back in half whileall night clouds shaped like potatoesfloated across the TV screen Afterwardyou untangled the she [...]


    2. Oh wow What a fantastic little tome.I don t remember where I originally heard of Sarah Freligh I just know that I read one poem and immediately emailed my local bookstore and asked them to order this book for me.I ve been reading it slowly ever since, savoring it There are so many pages folded over My favorite poem by far is the opening poem Starting With An Old Photo Of My Mother And Ending On A Hill it is full of beautiful, lonely images There are so many others, though, that are at the top of [...]


    3. So excited to have stumbled across this poet Great flow of poems here, almost a novella in poem form But the poems themselves are powerful, funny So many of them capture that small moment from a fresh angle.Looking forward to Sort of Gone



    4. Sarah Freligh s Sad Math draws you into its black and white, working class landscape of cigarettes, Kmart parking lots, motels and bars like a slow blues It s a world that s hollow at its center, an emptied womb, a world emptier still because we know our babies are not ours at all, because the Gone will haunt us, because of loss and its sad math One feels taken to a contemporary version of Fitzgerald s valley of ashes, to a place where our Godforsaken can take solace only in the realization tha [...]


    5. Freligh s poems are sometimes brassy, sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking, often shocking, invariably memorable.


    6. I loved reading these wonderful poems, and I love each one of them every time I reread it I m committing a few to memory The poems speak to so much about growing up that never makes it into poetic form quitting smoking, teenage sex, being groped by your boss, working at crappy jobs where people treat you badly Sarah Freligh brings so much depth to events like these The poems make my heart ache.


    7. Freligh is brilliant Though the subject matter of this book is cohesive, it is also vastly diverse The speaker grows, changes, learns, and so does the reader I ll gladly read it all again.


    8. Fantastic book of poems The author writes about difficult topics without sentimentalizing or attempting to manipulate the reader s emotions It s clear, clean, powerful writing at its best.
