Description

Our Bookseller says:

50 Things Kate Bush Taught Me About The Multiverse opens with a quote from Big Boi, lesser-known Kate Bush stan, which IMMEDIATELY lets you know that Karyna McGlynn understood the assignment perfectly. This collection is by turns a sardonically nostalgic foray into feral girlhood (energies reminiscent of: hunting parties devoted to Artemis, smoking clove cigarettes under the bleachers, “Oh, I wanna be a rubberband girl!”) and a tragicomically relatable deep-dive into modern adulthood (energies reminiscent of: writing workshops led by the worst people you know, overhearing shit you wish you didn’t, “I don’t know why I’m crying, am I suspended in gaffa?”)

You don’t have to be a Kate Bush fan to appreciate these poems — McGlynn alludes to 80s and 90s pop culture of all sorts — but if you’ve got two ears and a heart you probably already are. – Terry

“The poems in Karyna McGlynn’s 50 Things Kate Bush Taught Me About the Multiverse are like those spectacular mixed cocktails that carry our troubles away: they are spiked with the oddest ingredients and supremely intoxicating. I love their daring, their deep-diving humor. McGlynn’s poems remind us poetry can be fun. But only in the most devastating way.”
—Cate Marvin, author of Oracle and Event Horizon
