In So Much Synth, Brenda Shaughnessy “revisits the romances, isolation, and music of adolescence.” Melissa Broder’s Last Sext offers “a postmodern twist on the confessional” (Publishers Weekly). And Jennifer Grotz’s Window Left Open is “full of the sensory pleasures of the modern natural world and a slowed-down concept of time.” These three poets discuss their new work with moderator Ashley Toliver (Ideal Machine).
