When You Say One Thing But Mean Your Mother

Poet Melissa Broder is releasing her first book of poetry February 7 through Ampersand Press, entitled When You Say One Thing But Mean Your Mother. Publishers Weekly just reviewed it and said, ”This debut from Broder…is as funny and hip as it is disturbing…These poems are also quirkily compassionate…sexy, and at times even gross…Throughout, Broder searches for a place to stand, and for an object for her considerable sympathies. This is a bright and unusual debut.” She’s doing a series of reading throughout the New York and Philly areas, and the book is available through Amazon. Having not yet read it, I can only say that knowing what I do of her, I anticipate it greatly.
