I’ve read and enjoyed some of Horan’s stuff before, but this is a longer collection than her previous one and I think it benefitted because of it. She writes about alcoholism with a raw candor that I haven’t seen outside of Charles Bukowski, and if anything I think this collection was stronger than her last one. It’s the best poetry collection I’ve read so far this year, and while it is only the end of February, I still think that says a lot about it. Go read it.
