[08/10/2021] Superdoom: Selected Poems by Melissa Broder
Tin House Books, paperback
Publication Date: August 10, 2021
Publisher Marketing: Superdoom: Selected Poemsbrings together the best of Broder's three cult out-of-print poetry collections--When You Say One Thing but Mean Your Mother,Meat Heart, andScarecrone--as well as her fourth collection,Last Sext.
Embracing the sacred and the profane, often simultaneously, Broder gazes into the abyss and at the human body, but with both humor and heartbreak, lust and terror. As Booklist writes, "Broder has built a career on brutally strange, introspective encounters with language . . . strikes a precarious balance between raw indulgence in beautiful filth and unrelenting inquiry into the nuances of human audacity." A must-have for long-time fans and the perfect introduction to one of our most brilliant and original poets.
