'The work of a genuine original ... surreal ... funny ... subversive' Sunday Times What if a deer did porn? Is it legal to marry a stuffed owl exhibit? And what would Walt Whitman's tit-pics really look like? Free-wheeling and surreal yet deadly serious, and including the viral hit 'Rape Joke' ('An oblique mini-masterpiece' - Guardian), this book shows one of our most original poets at her virtuosic best. 'Lockwood has written a book at once angrier, and more fun, more attuned to our times and more bizarre, than most poetry can ever get' Stephen Burt, The New York Times Book Review, Books of the Year 'Lockwood should enter the canon forever . . . her lines left me crying on the subway' Kat Stoeffel, The Cut 'The little hairs on my back rose often while reading Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals . . . That's biological praise, the most fundamental kind, impossible to fake' Dwight Garner, The New York Times

MEDIA REVIEWS
[Lockwood's] long poem about being raped, Rape Joke, became a viral hit in 2013, not just because it is shocking, but because it is brilliant. The poems in [this] collection ... are the work of a genuine original. They are surreal, they are funny, they are subversive. They do what poetry is meant to do: they make you look at things in a different way -- Christina Patterson * Sunday Times *
Prismatically witty, sexually slippery, polymorphous, and Millennially mischievous poetry ... I can see [Lockwood] in my mind, post-religion, post-family, a savvy, wounded poet hanging over an electronic abyss ... Can poetry address the massive and systematic degradation of the mental environment? Lockwood, her personae shimmering, her linguistic sensors tingling, is one of the few poets tough enough and shrewd enough to try -- James Parker * The Atlantic *
[Lockwood] has written a book at once angrier, and more fun, more attuned to our time and more bizarre, than most poetry can ever get, a book easy to recommend for people who do not read new poetry often - as well as for people who do. -- Stephen Burt * The New York Times Sunday Book Review *
The little hairs on my back rose often while reading Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals ... That's biological praise, the most fundamental kind, impossible to fake. -- Dwight Garner * The New York Times *
Heroically weird -- Eryn Loeb * Guernica *
