A 2011 No Tell Motel Best Of
Praise from Catherine Wagner, author of My New Job:
What a strange batch of lovers: Banjo, Bear, Bow Tie, Half Organ, Russia, and Strong Heart. But love is a strange affair, and A. Minetta Gould’s language, wry, rowdy and ingenious, mocks it up, down, and all around.
from Janaka Stucky, publisher of Black Ocean books:
