Reviews

"Siken writes about love, desire, violence, and eroticism with a cinematic brilliance and urgency that makes this one of the best books of contemporary poetry."-Victoria Chang, Huffington Post

"Vital, immediate, and cinematic in scope, [Siken's] verse offers sharply observed vignettes of longing, love, and pain."-Library Journal (Best Poetry of 2005)


"Siken's debut collection derives its energy from the friction among bodies, selves, and lovers. . . . This book will excite patrons and be long remembered. Recommended for all collections."-Library Journal

"Vital, immediate, and cinematic in scope, [Siken's] verse offers sharply observed vignettes of longing, love, and pain."-Library Journal (Best Poetry of 2005)


"A powerful collection of poems . . . at once confessional, gay, savage, and charged with a violent eroticism."-Forecast

"
Crush is a wondrous, brilliant book. Richard Siken's poetry is daring in its construction, graceful yet startling in its beauty, and complicit with emotions and states of mind that would have remained unintelligible without him."-Dennis Cooper
