The First Review of my Thirteen Designer Vaginas!

"As in all Cook's work, there is wonderfully dynamic wordplay, an undercurrent of horror and little tolerance for the candy-coated comforts..."

A small snippet from the very first review of myThirteen Designer Vagina's poetry chapbook now appears on the Melusine blog, here:

Thank you ever so much much to Melusine editor Janelle Elyse Kihlstrom AND of course to Hyacinth Girl Press, which published this chapbook.

Here is another snippet from the review:

"In these poems Cook's signature motif of the "doll injection mold" is applied to the one aspect of anatomy the cookiecutter-variety plastic girl's doll explicitly lacks but which, for the adult woman, has nevertheless failed to escape the influence of the "injection mold" philosophy of shame for any sort of deviance from an arbitrarily prescribed ideal."

Here is where you can buy yourself a copy of this chapbook if so inclined:

And speaking of small press poetry chapbooks brimming with artsy darkly delicious delight, Blood Pudding Press will be offering a newly published chapbook, very very soon!
