Poet Kate Baer narrates her collection of erasure poems with humor, warmth, and tenderness. The poems, which explore womahood, sexism, Internet culture, desire, and more, are composed from online messages Baer has received, both positive and negative. Her ability to extract wise, compassionate, and beautiful poems even out of hateful notes is truly extraordinary. The audiobook includes both the original messages and Baer's poems. When reading the messages, she varies her voice, often infusing it with anger, sarcasm, passion, or gratitude, depending on the sender. She delivers the poems in a quieter, more reverent tone, leaving plenty of time between each word or line to represent the empty space. This short audiobook is worth every moment; it's like listening to Baer unearth a series of remarkable treasures. L.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2021]
